Yes, I had noticed the 0% chance of rain on the ten day forecast for May 6th. But had not wanted to jinx things by saying anything.

I also note some hardy souls were wellie deep in ditch mud even when the skies were only light grey. Ditch digging is a different thing from the usual scratching.

Could you post an update on this next week? I won't make my final packing decisions until Friday, but would be embarrassed to admit how early I tossed the first few items in the backpack!

ps, sorry to see on a different thread that you are on oxygen. I mean, you were a rickety old chap when last we met, and must have declined significantly in the interval! :P

Having dug with Justin for several seasons I can say that looks like a typical vicus road.

I used to loathe cobbles, but on occasion you do find interesting bits in amongst them.
