Twelve walkers today. Our walk started at Lupton House. (Previously home of Lord Churston and later Gramercy school)   A cold wind, 8° but dry .

After pre-ordering our lunch, we set off down Lupton’s drive, over to Churston village, along Green Lane then circled around the Church.  Over the stile and into Quay Lane. ..
We meandered down through the side of Grove woods and the newly planted valley.   We noticed many new plants and young growth from trees that had been cut down three years ago.  It was lovely to see some bluebells – though a couple of weeks later should be the best time this year…
By this time, we were shedding a layer as it was sunny and sheltered in the valley.
We had a drink stop at Churston Cove – no seals this time!
After a few puffs, everyone managed the steep path up through the woods . Well done!  The ominous black clouds were getting very near…  Torquay across the Bay, getting a downpour but only a few spots of rain for us. Lucky!
We then walked around Battery Point – a very keen wind blowing here- glad to get down to the shelter of Brixham Harbour…
After taking a bus back to Lupton, we walked back along the drive and  all 12 of us stayed to enjoy a well earned lunch. Exceptional value and tasty
food !
