N=14 on this, on w=a-crisp-winter-day-cold-but-sunny-and-dry There was ice and snow underfoot - mostly a light dusting of the latter but occasionally deeper. One or two slopes were tricky. The Plough was welcoming and people seemed content. Some even stayed for pudding. And so on to Charing where the Mulberry was open and the Oak was shut. All 14 arrived at the station within minutes of each other (is this a record?) and got the 15:47. Enjoyable walk, good day out.
