Re: Some Observations by a YHA warden

Slaidburn is wonderful, I've stopped there most times. Last but one time a brilliant warden sat with me and took me through the history and the politics of the YHA, it was fascinating. That night I slept in the games room due to a snorer. In 2017 I checked in ..then had a Road to Damascus moment; I ...
