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.
A Walk in the Springtime Devon Countryside.
On Sunday 26th March 14 Ramblers, who had lost an hour's sleep with the change to BST, met at Doddiscombleigh to take a six mile walk in the beautiful Devonshire country side in Springtime. Spring flowers were in abundance, the grass was green and the lambs were gambolling in the fields - all helped by a bright blue sky with passing clouds. The route encompassed many fields as well as Devon lanes and some interesting cottages. Devon, having been unaffected by the savagery of the Ice Age, is full of soft rounded hills so the enjoyment of the walk was accompanied, as usual, with plenty of cardio vascular exercise! A number of deer were seen running through the fields and woods and, at the end, Janet was thanked for a lovely walk concluding with tea at the Nobody Inn.
