Weather looks good and a handy Waterloo East train very convenient so I'll be coming.

n=9 or 10 on this walk. The weather was w=bright_and_clear. A bit of a squelch in the morning through Eridge Park, although the clay wasn't cohesive enough to build up on ones boots.
Two more joined at lunch and the group fragmented with the pub lunchers dallying in the Neville.
Slightly firmer underfoot in the afternoon passing through RSPB Broadwater Warren with it's amazing collection of flora, fauna and wild life before the final leg passing High Rocks and following the Spa Valley into Tunbridge

Thought the unexpected High rocks and the lunch time pub were a knockout jfk
