November 25th – Bovey Tracey

On a bright but showery morning following the recent cold spell, Jane led fourteen walkers around the Parke Estate.

Starting from The Dolphin Inn in Bovey Tracey Jane took us up the riverside path to the National Trust offices at Parke. From there we climbed upwards to enjoy fine views over the Bovey Basin, pausing in the bright sunshine to take the customary Group photo.
We continued along the top of the ridge before eventually dropping down to the old railway track which we then followed back to Bovey Tracey, enjoying the glorious autumn colours along the way. Back at the Dolphin Hotel we were joined by Bob, Malcolm and Ernie for an enjoyable meal.
