A mild and damp day. The terrain around here is flat and low and we came across a lot of standing water in the
non-urban areas. We also walked by the River Pinn, the Yeading Brook and the disused canal feeder from Ruislip Lido.
Whilst there is still some "countryside" around, the illusion is somewhat spoiled by the racket from the A40 Western Avenue
close by. For about half the walk, it was drizzling and would have soaked anyone not wearing water proofs.
There were eight of us on the walk and were joined by a further five in the Coach and Horses. Brian M was in "the chair" to celebrate his birthday. Baguettes and sandwiches were consumed having arrived soon after ordering. Good service and choice of ales, albeit only one micro. We ignored the London Pride and Doombar and went for Windsor & Eton "Knight of the Garter", a pale and hoppy brew in excellent condition.
