    Thanks for turning up guys....at times felt like a battle of the Somme reenactment, but we soldiered bravely on through the mud and impromptu rivers of water! Good company and the sculpture trail was really cool. Hope to see you guys on a future walk. J

      Hi, am picking up email messages on my phone so no probs.

  • Jane

    And a soggy good morning to you! For the intrepid walkers who are venturing out, lets do a rain check when we get there. The pub opens at 12.00 so could shorten walk if needs be. My more immediate problem is I have no breakfast stuff and may have to eat the leftover tiramisu!

  • Emma B

    Can I bring a dog

    December 10, 2012

    • Kiran

      James, if you do bring your dog you may need to keep it on a lead. It's not my event...so, sorry I'm sticking my nose in. But I do know that one person listed is nervous of dogs :)

      December 11, 2012

  • Jane

    Ilamas, dogs, but especially donkeys (then they can carry my rucksack) are most welcome. Best wishes, Dr Doolittle
