August 20th – Avon Valley at Loddiswell

Planned by Dennis though led by Joy, this was a splendid 5 mile walk on a dull summer’s day with rain forecast.

We left the South Hams village of Loddiswell and walked past Ham Butts and Reads Farm to meet the River Avon.
We followed the river upstream for a while then crossed the river using a very interesting bridge in order to follow the old railway track downstream on the opposite bank to the Avon Mill garden centre where we stopped for coffee.

Continuing our walk via Newmill Bridge we reached the Loddiswell Inn where we had an outstanding lunch for which we were charged £6.99 for a two course meal of excellent quality.

The forecast rain duly appeared as we left the pub – much too late to spoil our day.
