Sunday 5th October- Sherston, Wiltshire
Me, Kate Force One, Magic Dave, Mr P and The Boy
Not a walk, but a fine Sunday outing to the Cotswold village of Sherston to enjoy the ‘Ancient’ sport of Mangold Hurling. Is there anything finer than spending a Sunday afternoon throwing large vegetables around whilst listening to a brass band and drinking cider*?
First discovered the existence of the Sherston Mangold Hurl a few years ago during a stop at the Rattlebone Inn whilst rambling. We finally made it this year and it was everything we hoped it would be.
Team Norman made the semi-finals. Next year, victory. Marvellous.
* The Boy would argue yes: writing computer code. We outvoted him.
