N=12 embarked on this High Weald excursion in W=dry-warm-and-humid conditions. The group split in Burwash on account of the majority doing 'just' the normal distance and lunching there, while 5 continued to Burwash Weald for lunch. Beautiful outing with plenty of wide wooded valleys, fantastic vistas, endless wildflower meadows and hardly a soul in sight. Indeed on the extension from the lunch pub, all 19 km of it, we didn't meet a single person! Hard work as well on account of knee high grass in those lovely meadows, and slippery paths in the many woods. Characterful woods at that. Lots of streams as well. Perfect mix. 20.23 train for the extenders.

The shorter walk walkers enjoyed an excellent lunch in the pub garden in warm conditions. Just as well as the ceiling around the bar collapsed due to workmen installing a wardrobe in the bedroom above. The afternoon was really fine apart from the Bridleway section which was ankle deep in liquid mud. DAC has confirmed that there is an alternative which he hopes to replace this section for future publication.
