Nineteen of us met at the starting point in Sutton on a beautifully sunny though cold Saturday morning, a mixture of IOG veterans, new members and potential members, plus a well-behaved dog.
We set off on our 10.25-mile ramble along country lanes, across fields, through woods, and across heathland.
As usual, I blindly followed the walk leader, appreciating the wonderful views but not taking in the route as I was too busy enjoying the banter with old members and newbies. Thankfully Lou recorded it on his GPS: https://explore.osmaps.com/en/route/11170706/Sutton-and-Ramsholt-22-01-22
After a short mid-morning stop, we continued to Ramsholt, arriving in good time to eat our packed lunches just outside the pub looking out on to the river.
We walked the four miles back to Sutton along a very muddy riverside path, with several of us stopping to take photos en route.
We then cut up inland to arrive back at the starting point with the sun still shining.
It was a wonderfully picturesque walk. Many thanks to Ian R. for organising and leading, and to all for your great company.
