England Hashing with Mamarazzi!

Lichfield Hash

Yesterday we travelled  to the cathedral city of Lichfield to take part in a Birmingham Hash House Harriers event.

LichfieldHWe arrived late and had to find a parking space, buying a parking ticket proved a challenge. We found the venue, fortunately the hashers were still drinking.



LichfieldH2We eventually circled up and theLichfield1H hare “Festering Gash” described the symbols used on the trail.
Lichfield3HWalkers and runners set off through the city centre, watched by rather bemused Saturday shoppers.


LichfieldH6We soon lost the runners, except “Marvin” in the LichfieldH5red T-shirt. he lost the runners too. We wandered past busy shops and cafes.


LichfieldH7As we walked up towards the Cathedral Close there was
a pool on the left.

TheLichfieldH13 front was very impressive and close to the house where Erasmus Darwin, Charles Darwin’s Grandfather had lived.


LichfieldH14We then walked on into a park, close to the registry office, newly married couples taking photo opportunities amongst the beautiful flowers and attractive surroundings.


Families were enjoying the fine weather.LichfieldH16




Finally we headed to the pub for a refreshing drink, we enjoyed a tour of LichfieldH17Lichfield, we sadly had to leave before the down downs and the pleasures of toasting marshmallows on a fire pit, our time had ran out in the carpark.
