The ups and downs of Hillgate

Yet more of my deathless prose in March’s Opening Times about the famous Hillgate Stagger (scroll down to Page 6). Since the article was written, the Royal Oak has closed, and it is believed that the Flying Dutchman is likely to go the same way (despite the winsome ladies suggesting I looked like Ronnie Barker). So what was once a 16 or 17 pub crawl will be reduced to a mere 7. Such are the times we live in.

  1. When next in Stockpit I shall offer a pint to anyone the spit of Ronnie Barker. Make sure to ask for "four candles".
