4 walkers dull day. Some confusion at Pulpit hill fort. Directions had us foxed. Good going in the forest and grass tracks but hard work in the mud, heavy clay and ploughed fields. A super walk. Please post again in summer. Russell Arms outstanding food, wine, and service all with TWO roaring fires. Please correct their phone number! Enjoyable outing. Thank you walk poster. A good choice.
