Circular Walk from Cuckfield, Sunday 13th January 2008

This walk was from the program.

The weather forecast had been for heavy rain and gales for this day. So we 12 mudlarks were grateful that the rain came overnight.

We enjoyed a dry day weather-wise and some of us, a good wet of Dark Star ale at lunchtime.
Five miles before lunch took us through the Black Forest west of Cuckfield, which as Ray quipped, we should expect to be sticky!

Although dry, it was pretty much blowing a gale, as this flag on the Pickwell estate shows.

After a convivial lunch at The Ansty Cross, we slipped and slid our way for a further 3.5 miles, which was okay so long as you kept to the dry bits. There weren't any dry bits though -- but it was all good fun. Thanks to you all who braved the elements on this day.
