Mepal walk

A record number of 18 members gathered at the meeting point in clearing rain. The walk started out by going across two muddy fields and then onto grassy paths. In some places the tracks were very muddy as can be seen by the pictures. Along with the mud in places the wind which had kept the rain away picked up . After brief coffee and lunch stops, the final return leg was along the Ouse wash which was a challenging walk into a headwind that even the birds did not enjoy. The rain did stay away but returning down the road along the 16 foot drain we were battered by heavy rain and sleet shower with very poor visibility

    Thanks Helen for thee report & pics. Mepal has something of a reputation for mud but seems to have excelled itself today. From the weather report, I’m glad that I spent the day indoors helping out at Ramblers General Council in Cambridge (Brian).
