Sunday 8 April 2018 was not a fine day for rambling but the worst efforts of the weather man did not deter a valiant group of St Francis of Assisi Catholic Ramblers from turning out for the following walk bravely led by Lizzie Cripps in the countryside around Wadhurst.


Lissie's experience on the walkouts led us to put the following notice on the website before the date of the walk.
