Starts to get a bit muddy

You eventually come out on Back Lane, near East Hanningfield. There is a short path from this point to East hanningfield Sports field, but it was all 9 inches in mud! Although I managed to get through, an alternative would be to turn left up Back Lane.

Path after Back Lane. It looks OK here but soon turns into a mud bath.
