Quality quagmire
Quality quagmire
The paths are not always obvious on the ground from one stile to the next, and local residents don't always stick to what the map depicts, so unwary walkers local and otherwise, approaching from the NE, tend to cut diagonally across this field to the open gap in this corner. This turns out to be an error when one arrives at this point - this corner of the field has never held any snow for the whole month that it has been lying thickly elsewhere, as the ground is permanently saturated, despite a stream draining east which is carrying a good flow away. Even without the current rapid thaw, it is rarely possible to exit this field corner dryshod and frequently even wellies are not up to the task...
