7 alighted from the Euston train at Watford Junction to just miss the connection to Garston. 5 waited 40 minutes for the next train to meet up with the 2 who had walked on to Garston and we later on caught up at lunch with 3 who had travelled via a different route to Watford. Thus n=10 on an w=overcast-and-mild day.

There was actually four of us at Garston at the appointed time - one newbie who saw the walk posted on the meet-up website. We made good progress to the Mill, and the newbie, being a local gave us much interesting commentary on the various sites / pubs along the way. The beefeater was very good for lunch and served us quickly. The mud was present but not too bad actually and we all stayed dry on a fairly sunny afternoon. Four of us went on to look around the Abbey and one only (!) went on to tea at Abigails and had a beautiful walnut and banana cake! lovely day out!
