I will be driving to Newcastle from Winchester on Friday and intend to call into Bobco's on the way. Can anybody tell me if there are any nice picnic spots near to Bobco where we could stop and eat our lunch? Any suggestions gratefully received.

Over to you the locals. I visited recently and found it was in an industrial estate type of area. Not easy to find at all. Personally I would rely on a motorway stop before getting to Leeds..

If your travelling up the M1 come off at J38 and call in at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

Yeadon tarn is quite nice spot, out towards the airport.

Traffic may be a little heavy round Leeds on Friday as it is the start of the Leeds festival at Bramham park. I would probably carry on and stop in Wetherby, Harrogate or Ripon

Aye fish and chips from Murgatroyds, then eat them by the tarn! Think Roundhay park will be a bit of a mudbath after the Sheeran gig!!

Temple Newsam park and house, are also well worth a visit, but not just for a flying visit.

Personally as great as BobCo is, I'd go M1, M18, A1M and avoid Leeds entirely ( BobCo's mailorder is brilliant). Wetherby services is good for a splash and dash, but you'll need a gold card to buy fuel there.

A1M at Aberford to Wetherby where it crosses the A64 is where the festival traffic will be bad
