The lads can't find accommodation because Arthur Pringle has 'put the word out' about them, so they have to 'rough it' in Thornley Manor.

6: Cowboys (28 Mar 86)

A plumber named Harry Blackburn, who's mad about Country and Western music, joins the gang temporarily. He talks the gang into going for a night out at a Country and Western pub, where "Big Willie Osborne" does a turn.
