Mangold Hurling

Sunday 5th October- Sherston, Wiltshire

Me, Kate Force One, Magic Dave, Mr P and The Boy

NIMG_1565ot 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*?

 

IMG_1558First 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.
