Saturday 22nd February 2014
Well the weather held for most of the day – beautiful sunshine with intermittent clouds – ground conditions were still soggy though but that was what I expected.
Time was short so I bypassed ‘The Milk House’, ‘The Woodcock’ and repaired to the tried and trusted ‘Railway Tavern’ at Staplehurst where, again, I was made most welcome.
The recommendation is ‘Do not pick up an Adder’ – most referrals are because the public picked up Britain’s only venomous snake and unsurprisingly got bitten. Leave them alone and they will leave you alone.
