n=17 A good group with fine weather, and friendly reception in the Sun Inn.
We decided that the instructions have a mistake in para 21, turn left uphill onwards needs removing.

We also took a different route after the pub, turning right and walking down the road to the B471, crossing it and joining the main walk at para 48. Also the GPX needs updating which I will do.
