22 Marshals from Dorset LDWA turned up at 0800 at Pimperne for the last ever Foggy's Revenge Marshal's Walk. (We all finished)

We were rewarded with wonderful views from the mighty Iron Age fort of Hambledon Hill, snowdrops in the Blackmore Vale, soup at Ashmore Village Hall (what a palace!!) and an experience of the rural Dorset that many people do not realise still exists. Not to mention thixotropic mud on the chalk slopes. It will be even better on the day of the event...

Some of the faster walkers let themselves down by finishing in daylight. Well, that's alright I suppose, but Deirdre and I chose to savour the experience by choosing to "back marker" the last four miles in the deepening gloom and drizzle. By doing so, you really appreciate the extraordinary depth of mud on the last section of footpath before returning to Pimperne. (in other words, bring your torches....)

But - what a lovely day out. If you have entered, or are thinking of entering, you have a real treat in store
