2020 March 3 Loudwater - Dereham's Inn


Cold, wet, windy. In fact, the rain never stopped, although it was only light. A cold (3c) wind in exposed places felt very raw. At least the route was flat and largely mud free. Both branches of the Wye were high with a strong current. We walked in the opposite direction from the official course (by accident, as it happens) but we did do all of it which included walking round the boating lake at the western end.

Five brave souls defied the elements and were joined by five more waiting in the pub. We have been here many times so nothing more to add except to say they had more beers on. I had a Harvey's Sussex Best which was very good and then tried the Timothy Taylor's "Landlord Dark" which was fabulous (and very dark). There seems to be a fad for "pale" and "golden" ales at the moment which I'm not keen on so the TT dark was a welcome change.
