    Cool, there are few people going, the walk is going ahead in the rain. The senic of Darent Valley in the rain could be different, but still beautiful hopefully.

    The walk in Oftord and the Darenth valley is very scenic and will pass through woodland and farm land, it can be muddy in places so appropriate footwear is recommended.

    Looking forward to meeting everyone tomorrow.
