N=26 plus two who got a later train and caught us at the lunch pub

The frost under foot made for firm footing when we were not on tarmac paths so overall there was very little mud. Lovely views of the race track and hills and woods all emphasised by the low sun. We all got enchanted by the ice on the Mere Pond ( and the dog that went in and broke the ice )
Lunch at The Sportsman in Mogador was excellent with a large varied selection at reasonable prices and the limited staff coped with us and another large group very well.
We didn't get round to seeing the plaque for Emily Davison at Tattenham Corner so I will keep an eye for it next time
Tea and desert at Tattenham Corner ( the real reason I missed the Emily Davison plaque ) was a nice finish 200 metres from the train home.
Though it was graded a 1 out of 10 I still felt tired b the time that I got to the train
