Mostly sunny and dry. A bit windy in exposed places but altogether very pleasant weather. Much
of this route we have tramped over when it was much muddier. The only damp spots were in the bottoms
and some muddy wallows (suitable, perhaps, for warthogs) in the woods. No deviations and no-one took
a short cut.
Seven of us walked and met another six in the Squirrel for lunch. Lovely pub with atmosphere and four ales (plus one cider). Animal (XT) Squirrel was popular but I and another were on West Berkshire "Good Old Boy". Yum.
