December 8th Ashburton

– Led by Ernie

Regretfully Jenni and I missed this walk, which included the traditional Xmas lunch.

However Jane and Peter both took photosgraphs and I have uploaded them all to PicasaWeb.

It was so cold today, but a great time was had by all, and here are a few of my phone photos again, not too good, but Mary and Ernie took some also. The steps in one of the photos were so very slippy and it took a while to get us all down them with our any falls…….The lunch was super and a great meeting

You can see Jane’s photos here and also Peter’s photos here.

December 1st – Dartington to Totnes

– Led by Jenni & Tony

On a morning of sub zero temperatures when most of Britain was shivering under a blanket of snow, 13 hardy walkers turned out for a sunny walk from Dartington Cider Press.

Passing through the village of Cott we went on to Totnes, up past the Castle then down through the town where we picked up the riverside path to return to our starting point.

November 17th – Stover

Led by Ernie 

Tony & Jenni were sunning themselves in Tenerife on the day of this walk.

Once again Jane was on hand with her phone to take the pictures. Jane writes:- So this is our walk today Tony, it was so very bad last night with heavy rain and winds Ernie decided we had to have the lunch any way at the Star Inn so we did and had a great time.
Sorry the photos are a bit off, still on my mobile, should have taken the camera, but we all had so much to say to each other and it was so good to see Mary and Jo join us, also Tim and Heather.

November 3rd – Warren House Inn

– Led by Joy

Tony & Jenni wimped out on this walk due to the extremely wet weather. However several more hardier specimens went anyway, and Jane took these photos on her mobile phone.

Jane writes:- Had a lovely walk on the moor, started off dry and ended wet! Super lunch at the Warren House Inn and all seven of us had a good time! Joy told us all about the workings in the mines and the large population on the Moor at that time.

We saw the site of the old tram lines and she told us so much about the area, even how they were fed with the rabbits from the warrens, so for Bob and I even is the mist did come down and blurr out every thing it brought the past to life for us.

She also told us tales of the church in Widdecombe and the devil on his horse, so we expected him to come out of the mist at any time..Also the pub, the Warren House Inn has a fire which Graham says has never been allowed to go out, and the food was wonderful.

October 20th, Penn Inn

– Led by Graham

Fifteen walkers turned out on this very bright though chilly autumnal walk through the woods of Milber then down to Haccombe House, taking in beautiful views of Dartmoor and the Teign Estuary.

Graham had promised us an easy walk of just 3 1/2 miles though this proved to be a slight underestimate, later calculated by Dennis to be 5.65 miles.

We returned to the Penn Inn for lunch
