Eventually we got back to the car, boots covered in mud. We had only walked around 4 miles and taken 1.30 hours to do so but E., was still recovering from Norovirus and us from the weekend of the wedding. That's our excuses anyway and we are sticking to them.
For lunch, we drove to Sculthorpe Mill for sandwiches and a drink.
