N=22 on a w=balmy-sunny day. Cinderella weather - not too hot, not too cold. There was another group too, walking independent of us. The walk was quite pretty. Plenty of big trees. The directions could maybe do with a revamp. There was scratching of heads in places. And it wasn’t nits. Mr Tiger can’t comment, he was trying to follow the book, and not very successfully, though this may have been due to keeping up with the others for once. The Rose and Crown was fine.
