n=9 got off of the train and it was awful weather w=cold-windy-and-damp though a couple of people from South London had both seen snow that morning that didn't settle
But we all got on with it and got muddy though thankfully there was no really wet areas so no flooded boots
We had a fair lunch in the Amazon and Tiger and then as predicted by BBC became weather w=a-little-sunny.
A welcome rushed tea at the rather crowded Cock Inn and then all 9 of us made it too the 4pm train back
