Walk Report

Epping Forest, Thursday 21st July 2011
14 walkers, 7 miles - leader Dave Williams
On a dark and dank evening 14 hardy souls turned up at Snaresbrook for a traipse around the southern edge of Epping Forest. However, within a very short time many of them were regretting their decision due to the very wet conditions underfoot which had turned many of the tracks, normally dry at this time of year, into a soggy quagmire! I'm pleased to say that in spite of these conditions everyone survived this ordeal with no reported incidents. Towards the end the weather even brightened up for us and we reached 'The Walnut Tree', the Wetherspoons pub in Leytonstone in fine spirits, where the majority of us took advantage of the offer of a curry and a pint for 5 pounds 99p to round off a mostly enjoyable evening.
