Mild for the time of year, damp, but no actual rain. Lots of water lying around. Some of
the trails were extremely wet and muddy, particularly where horses had been ridden and we also
noted the odd bicycle tyre track. Some people cut off the north-eastern "bulge" and were
later caught up by the rest of us, despite turning the wrong way at Moors Farm (quickly spotted
and corrected). There are a multitude of tracks in Tylers Hill Wood and I wasn't paying enough
attention with the result we went wrong. People had different ideas about what to do. The obvious
way seemed to be blocked and there were a lot of deep pits to be avoided. Most of us met up in
the lane back to the pub.
There were nine of us braving the mud and were met by three more and a cyclist in the Hen & Chickens. This is an old fashioned country pub, famous for it's steak pies. A number of us had them. Ales were Rebellion IPA and Smuggler and Youngs ordinary. Sadly, the Smugglers was not in the best condition.
