This walk involves a fair bit of water and bridges over it. There are weirs and bridges galore in this area alongside a set of stepping stones which also cross the river. The river is question here is the River Teign and in winter is nearly always running fairly high, on this day it was running very high which meant the stepping stones were out of the question unfortunately. Before I get into the walk I must apologise for being a little tardy with my updates recently, I had a decent run of walking over Christmas and managed 4 walks before I had to go back to work, 2 of these I have published and this is the 3rd one. I then got Covid and ended up stuck in the bedroom glumly looking out the window at blue skies for this last week. This was a bit of a downer, the weather for the whole of December was damp with low cloud in Plymouth which carried on into January, and then the day I got Covid was the day it brightened up for a week!! Typical. Still the virus wasn’t a bother, I had a bit of a stuffed up nose but that was it, however it meant I felt robbed of the decent weather and being cooped up just left me crawling the walls. As a result of this I find myself now writing about a walk which was done on New Years Eve! I’d had enough of the Plymouth’s dank weather and decided to chance a visit to the eastern side of Dartmoor to see if it was better over there, it normally is if the prevailing south westerly weather is coming in. I was spot on with my hunch and enjoyed a bit of sunshine on this side, a fine way to end the year with my 64th walk of 2021.
