Barrows Green

When I read about the Punch Bowl at Barrows Green, I thought it might be a geographic feature or a description of a drink. I was wrong!

The Punch Bowl is a description of the Landlord, who will punch you on the nose if you park at his pub without going in for a meal.

Arriving unusually early, I had to bend in my wing mirror to squeeze past what I thought was a badly parked car.

It turned out to be the landlord’s car deliberately blocking the entrance to stop anybody coming to his pub! A bit counter-productive – I thought!

Late arrivals managed to get him to move his car, but I don’t know what form of bribery or sexual coercion they used. Maybe Twisted flashed him her gorgeous pair or maybe not!

We all discussed at great length what other pub to go to, to pay him back for his rudeness, but after an unusually long run we ended up drinking his beer and eating his food and it was not bad at all.

I expected to set off up the nearby Helm as a fitting start to the run but it was fenced off for a Fell Race that afternoon on what must be the smallest Fell in Cumbria as one of the hares was later running there.

Instead we set off across boggy fields looking for the compulsory shiggy and then through farmyards and country lanes for a long way until we finally arrived at the beer stop near the Lancaster Canal. (Yes we had reached Lancaster) But there was no beer! The pub landlord had hijacked the Hash Wagon and stopped him going to the beer stop – hoping to sell us more himself.

Finally it arrived and we had to drink water instead of beer as the day was so hot.

The home run was down the canal towards Kendal but after crossing another hill we ended up in Sedgwick instead of Kendal, which is nowhere near Barrows Green.

Our luck was in because our three under-5 hashers live in Sedgwick and they were only too keen to use their under-age licences to drive us to Barrows Green and so to lunch and beer and more beer and more beer. No circle in case it upset the landlord! On On to our next run in Kowloon!
