Chip Foundation Chronicles

The Chip Foundation Chronicles has been a long-running series here on the West Midlands Exploration blog, detailing the various adventures of Nick, Stephen and myself since 2010. On occasion we have also been joined by guest members including Ken, Mr Beardsmore Senior and even my own Dad from time to time.

A typical Chip outing will usually involve a fair amount of walking, a selection of pubs and the all-important chip shop treat, plus Stephen getting through copious amounts of lemonade and blackcurrant!
