Title: Will's 60th birthday pub crawl
Creator: Will Larter

What better way to celebrate a significant milestone birthday than a pub crawl around some of the top establishments in my adopted city? The heart of the crawl is some well-known pubs in the Kelham Island area, notably the Kelham Island Tavern itself, twice winner of Camra's national pub of the year award, and the Fat Cat, home of Kelham Island Brewery. The meeting place is the Dove & Rainbow, an easily missed pub which can be found by entering the Banker's Draft (JD Wetherspoon) and walking straight past the bar and out of the back door. There's a bus trip out to the excellent Sheaf View, and towards the end of the day a walk up Blake Street, the steepest street in a city of steep hills, to the Blake Hotel at the top.
