N=15 for this walk, with another 2 joining us for lunch. W=sunny_with_slight_breeze. Dry underfoot with only the slightest hint of mud in what would have been the worstest stretches. Some ate at the Rose and Crown. Cant tell you how it was. I don’t think I saw any food pass anyone’s lips. I’m a bit slow, see. The Bell is still shut. As is the later Wheel, still mentioned as a tea stop in the walk notes. No sign of it reopening though the “Under refurbishment” sign is now replaced by a “To Let” sign. Posters should note that, with the possible exception of a farm shop near the station, there are no opportunities for refreshment after Burwash. I think this was a disappointment to some. Plenty of wild flowers to delight the eye. 3 visited Batemans and were never seen again (spooky music).
