LAMA trip to Dartmoor
Thursday 20th September 2018
Most months, the Lerryn Area Minibus Association organises a Special Trip in addition to its regular trips to Bodmin, Truro and St Austell. The September trip took us to Dartmoor with fifteen passengers taking part. We set off on a very overcast and blustery day but the weather held up until 4.00pm when we were on our way home via Two Bridges and Princetown. By then you could not see any of the wild and beautiful scenery that we had admired throughout the day.
We had planned to have morning coffee in a hotel near Two Bridges and lunch in one of the two pubs in Widecombe-in-the-Moor. However, our plans had to be adjusted as an unexpected and unadvertised road closure in Gunnislake made us drive back to Callington and almost as far as Launceston before driving to Tavistock. This long detour delayed us by 45 minutes. All is well that ends well: we had a delicious lunch in the Two Bridges Hotel and a yummy afternoon tea in Widecombe-in-the-Moor. There, we had time to walk around the village and visit places of interest including the church with its very tall bell tower, known as the Cathedral of the Moor.
The fifteen passengers agreed that they had had a most enjoyable day out.
Our last three Special Trips of the year are as follows:
- Tavistock Farmers' Market on Saturday 27th October
- Wadebridge and Trelawney Garden Centre on Friday 16th November
- Mousehole Lights “Switch On” on Saturday 15th December (only 1 seat left)
