Strong winds in the night and early morning left fallen trees on roads and railways. Fortunately, the only problems we encountered on our five mile walk were large puddles on some bridleways. We splashed through some and skirted round others. The weather was good; it was cold and sunny.
Twenty-three turned up for the start in the small car park on Lea Coach Road. Two people became car park attendants and directed later arrivals into positions which allowed more cars to squeeze in.
The leader took us east through Witley Common, across the A286, over Mare Hill, south to Parsonage Farm, west on the Greensand Way, north along French Lane, west on a bridleway past The Shrubbery and on to Lea Coach Road and the car park.
