A visit to Fingle Bridge....

Since we have been down here in Devon we have been getting out a lot on various walks....
There was a time a few years back that any days off that I had from work I would spend walking.....
I would use almost all my time off walking and backpacking various trails and it's nice to get out and do some walking again and even better to be able to share the experience with Anne...

The destination chosen for a walk the other day was from our current campsite to Fingle Bridge and back....

It was a very hot day...but hey... I'm not moaning about the heat as it has been really nice to start off our trip with such marvelous weather...

We used part of the Two Moors Way again as well as a short section of the Dartmoor Way for our route...
We had a few drinks at the Fingle Bridge Inn and then had a picnic lunch in the woods overlooking the river....

On the return route we climbed up a path at the side of the gorge which ascended very rapidly, but is was worth the effort as the views from the top were simply stunning....
No photos of that fantastic view here I'm afraid as no photograph that I took could do it justice, however I do have some other images taken that day.....

The Fingle Bridge Inn... I only had a few drinks..honest!!

What a lovely place to visit, Trevor!
But, you need the beer (or other libation) to think, as Inspector Morse would say :)

Have a Great Day!
Peace :)

Beautiful area. We are so lucky here in the UK. We never have to go far to find wonderful walks.
