The building work on our extension plus alterations is now complete apart from a few minor things. Now waiting to hear when the decorators can come. The Blog entry for 27th November 2014  (http://baughen.co.uk/Blog/?m=201411) has been maintained with photos during this journey.

Groombridge walk

We joined Reigate Ramblers today on an 11 mile circular walk including Stone Cross, Fordcombe, Speldhurst and Groombridge in East Sussex. It was warm and dry most of the day with some clouds appearing in the last hour. Many paths were very muddy but it was great to be out in the fresh air and enhanced by the sounds of Spring.

Attached are some photos taken along the way plus a GoogleEarth map of the route. Thanks to Mark and Angela Garner, the leaders.
