Walking by the River Teign on a Warm Sunny Spring Day
On a warm and sunny day (9th April) 17 T&D Ramblers accompanied by 3 Ramblers from other Groups, went up to Chagford for a 6.5 mile walk led by Katherine.
They started with a steep climb up Nattadon Common where the views were extensive with plenty of blue sky. They then descended in the direction of Castle Drogo, still mostly under it's white tent. Later they joined a very pleasant riverside track by the Teign where it was good to see youngsters being brave enough to attempt a dip. They followed this path to Gidleigh Park before returning to Chagford.
Yet another delightful health giving walk.Thank you Katherine.
A Walk with views above Bishopsteignton
Richard, leader of the short walk on 2nd April, reports as follows:
Thirteen walkers started from Bishopsteignton on a fine spring morning. Taking the road through the village we climbed up the hill past Old Walls Vineyard, enjoying impressive views over the Teign. Old Walls Hill is a long climb, so we paused for a breather at a gate to watch a small ship threading its way through the narrow entrance to the port of Teignmouth.
A coffee stop was gratefully taken when we reached the car park at the eastern end of Postman's Path. Continuing westwards we reached Three Tree Lane and descended towards Lindridge. Lunch was taken under the tree opposite the gates of Lindridge Park. After lunch, green lanes and footpaths took us back to Bishopsteignton, having completed a six mile walk. All agreed it had been a lovely spring day.
