Yes, and thanks from me-first time on the Pewsey. Peak time for bluebells-rush out whilst there is time. They do seem to have been extra special this year. What an intense blue.

Lovely views (through the veils of mist...), lashings of mud, indomitably cheerful marshals with their umbrellas keeping the rain off the delicious eats, and doing so for hours. Good to have such long ridge stretches. Such a welcome meal at the end.

Many thanks to everyone in the Wilts group. Loved the horse boxes.

As you said Mike the bluebells in Gopher Wood were well worth all the pain ,rain and lashings of deep mud we encountered,thankyou to the Wiltshire group who were out in that weather as well as us but at least we were moving ,the finnish meal was spot on just what was needed to warm you up before returning home .all in all a great day out!

Excellent and tough event. A wonderful route, interesting mud - and an ocean of bluebell in the woods. Meadow saxifrage on the downs and wild fritillaries flowering in wet meadows.

Great support and food. Well done and thanks to Wiltshire LDWA
