Hi. Estimated mud level on this one, please. Thanks.

It's winter and it's been raining. Mudlarks will not be disappointed. But not quite as gloopy as Wealden mud.

N=17, W=Dry_and_sunny_except_for_short_hail_shower. Mud was not too bad on the chalk downland but there were some patches in the woods. A small group could not resist the nearness to the lunch pub and cut off 4km of Selsdon woods (Bluebells in Spring nothing in Winter). The author and principal walk inspector had not anticipated this and was a little late joining us for lunch. The Harrow welcomes muddy boots and paws and provided good food and efficient service. Having got ahead, the same group gorged themselves on cream teas at Knight's garden centre. Those who did the proper walk seemed to manage without stopping for lunch or tea.
