Another cracking hash picture with the cathedral cleverly obscured by hashers
The Woodman Inn in Durham – a nice steep climb from the train station was the destination for Wednesday’s hash. A dark but mild night, the select band set off with the walkers at 1900 hours onto the Claypath. The route headed off into the streets before wending its way away up to St Giles Church and down to the riverside.

Falsies abounded, FRBS allegedly abandoned and still the trail went on, passing by Maiden Castle, the hash then headed into the woods for a ‘trippy’ experience. No drugs were harmed but the plethora of tree roots caused more than a number of minor slips, trips and falls as the hash ( half torchless) gingerly picked their way along to Houghall College before turning back towards Durham for a shortcutting viewpoint and a perilous descent.
Passing the beer stop (sob) the hash carried onto the on inn for some delicious pub snacks and some slightly muted singing ( in deference to other patrons of the pub). After chuffing down some hotdogs, chips and salsa and serenading the landlady, Newcastle hashers made the very adult decision to head north before the clock had struck 9.30 and they turned into pumpkins.
Thanks to the hare for a lovely trail and a great pub.
