7th December – Ipplepen

On a remarkably mild morning Ernie led 12 walkers on this now traditional annual walk from The Wellington at Ipplepen.  We passed through Torbryan and then completed the 3 1/2 mile walk back to the pub where we were joined by a further 6 members for an excellent lunch.

23rd November – Staverton

After several days of wind and rain it was a relief to enjoy a pleasant walk on dry lanes.
Jenni and Tony led 10 walkers past Staverton Church and then alongside the River Dart to Staverton Station. We then completed a 5 mile circular walk, returning for lunch at the Sea Trout.

9th November – Shaldon and Ringmoor

It was a cold and bright day with the threat of heavy rain showers when Graham led 17 walkers on this very interesting tour of almost 4 miles around Shaldon and Ringmoor showing places seldom visited by many of us.
First we went through the Smugglers Tunnel to Ness Cove, then visited Shaldon Botanical Gardens where Graham informed us of its history. We then moved on to Ringmore, visiting the local church before returning to The London Inn for lunch.

26th October – Loddiswell

Jenni  and I led this walk with 9 others and as we had warned, it was  very muddy in places.
The walk was mainly along the track of the dismantled “Primrose Line” through the Avon Valley and was easy going despite the muddy parts.
After a walk of 4 miles we lunched at the Avon Mill Garden Centre where we were joined by Bob and Ernie.

2016-10-12 Clennon Valley

A chilly morning saw Arthur lead nineteen walkers on a 5 1/2 mile walk from Paignton seafront around Clennon Valley seeing places that most of us had not seen before. Along the way a Volunteer who was dragging out ash stumps from the lakes attempted to recruit us to join him. Arriving back at the Palace Hotel we were elegantly served with excellent meals. A big thank you to Arthur for organising it
