I noticed a small article in the paper today concerning the theft of a mummified hand from 'The Haunch of Venison' in Salisbury. Apparently this hand was wagered by some eighteenth century rakehell as part of a bet (which he lost).

Didn't Wardlawes have an evenings drinking and singing in this pub in the 90's? I seem to remember peering at some mummified old husk through an alcoholic haze (I'll line them up you knock 'em down), but couldn't be sure of the location.

Gordon, Martin do you recollect?

I recall an evening in Salisbury - but not the mummified hand, I'm afraid.
