A Walk around Stover Park and its Surroundings

                                                                                         The group posing at the Graving Dock with its unique side facing dry dock used for repairing the canal boats.

 

25 T&D Ramblers and a couple of dogs met at Stover Park on Sunday 22nd April for a walk of about 6 miles that allowed an exploration of the Park with its lakes, woods, and wildlife, including a young buzzard who kindly posed for Tony but not for me! The walk extended to the end of the granite railway from Haytor and the canal basin as well as the unique Graving (Dry) Dock used for overhauling the boats. Fields covered in water a couple of weeks ago were navigable and included a pleasant walk by the River Teign with out too much mud.


All of this occurred with good Spring weather and amiable company. Thank you Heather and Paul for leading the walk.
