N=20 on this walk. W=dismal-damp-but-never-really-properly-raining-so-cannot-complain. Autumn colours starting to come through. Quite pretty in places. 3 or 4 opted for the shortcut to the monument. The rest went to the Bridgewater Arms which was friendly and accommodating. Later, some stopped at the Brownlow. I got the 3:34 back to Shepherds Bush. Don’t know what the others did, they all vanished in the woods.
