3 walkers today in sub zero winds with grey skies and light snow in the afternoon. This was the muddiest walk I've ever been on, and I've got the boots to prove it.Even the green pasture on the hilltops was completely sodden and felt like a wet sponge.
In two different large fields, an over population of horses being kept outdoors all winter, has reduced the land to a quagmire, forcing us out on the nearest road.
A large but unsociable group of younger walkers stormed off the train in front of us, took a wrong turning after 200m, and then followed us all the way to lunch.
We eat sandwiches in the porch of Burwash church, then sped onwards to catch the 1623 home. Joe.
