    I live on the high moorland now, but have lived in many places in the county (except North Devon, that’s not even Devon is it..)

    I went to have a peep at a Disco down in Bovey recently, a right dog that wallowed like a pig in corners and dripped oil everywhere... wasnt a mate of yours, was it? :D

    I was up at Haytor and Hound Tor at the weekend, stunning weather but a real honey pot area stuffed full of people. I used to climb at Hound and Haytor 20 years ago, you would barely see anyone else climbing... you can’t move for bleddy harness-clad gits swinging their karabiners around these days ... :eek::D

    You probably arrived after me, I parked at Hound around 11 and was back around 4. There used to be a great burger / tea van at that car park, it was called The Hound of the Basketmeals, but sadly it’s gone now.

    There was a van, but it wasn’t ‘The Hound of The Basketmeals’ was it? It used to be run by lovely man called Alan Smith, it was like a big van not a trailer... his home made burgers were great!

    Not as far as the island of Cornish people, but close enough to Dartmoor to enjoy it most days :D

    Up there again this weekend for some night time pics!

    That’s very nearly in Gunnislake. The lanes around Horsebridge were getting a battering today with the bridge being knackered. It’s turned into right old rat run.

    Yep, Gunnislake is a smally stagger to my place tucked in the valley below Albaston.
    The damp down here isnt good for the old chassis though.

    Local FB info would allege that his BMW was giving it large to overtake an OAP. He then overlooked in the corner entering the bridge and twátted it good and proper.

    But that’s just idle gossip
