I think we may have been n=10 in total but it's hard to be sure as the train was cancelled at Guildford. 8 of us got the next train to Haslemere, then one back to Witley. At least 2 other walkers were on the platform at Guildford and we didn't see them again - hopefully they managed to get to Witley or do another walk. The weather was w=mostly_sunny_even_warm_at_times_and_a_5_min_sleet_shower_as_we_were_finishing. The morning was quite good underfoot. There were some very mucky stretches but also some firm ground, more muddy in the afternoon. Nonetheless a really nice walk with a good mix of open countryside and woodlands.
