Good Friday on Dartmoor
Friday 7th April 2023
A bit of an ordeal getting the train down to Okehampton amidst the Easter weekend madness but I made it there by not long after 2pm. I walked onto the moor from Okehampton via a different route to last time, following the road rather than the East Okement valley, and headed up onto Oke Tor and Steeperton Tor before heading across the moor to Buttern Hill, where I camped in the stone circle there.
Easter Saturday in Devon
Saturday 8th April 2023
Woke up to a frosty morning on the moor, packed up my tent, and then walked to Chagford via Scorhill stone circle and some other antiquities en route. Took the bus from Chagford to Exeter, then made a diversion on the way home to pop in to see Dad for afternoon tea, which coincided with Lucy and Martin and the boys visiting from Scotland.
