N=23 on this walk in w=very-mild-bright-sunshine. Very muddy, even the high grasslands were so sodden we sank inches into the soil. Some fallers. Some who did the alternative riverside return from Bodiam reported a collapsed bridge, necessitating a scramble down into a ravine (mysteriously dry) and up again the other side. On the outward leg, the river had formed a lake which covered the riverside path. We skirted it by going up the avenue of the Bruderhof community, who raised no objection. Most lunched at The Castle Inn, Bodiam which seems to have met with general approval.. A lovely walk which felt like a good 15 miles, though in reality it was only 8.7!
