Rain. Light but constant. A shorter walk than usual and just as well. We skirted Monkton Wood
and encountered no problems other than the odd pathway with a sign "Free Gingerbread this way". Back fairly early (12:10) and not too wet.
Ten and two dogs did the walk - no deviations, no short cuts and were joined by just two more in the pub. Very pleasant but small pub offering Rebellion IPA and Chiltern Beachwood. The Beachwood was the most popular. They also had real cider but you would have to ask Brian M about that.
