A Wander Around Hoo Meavy and Burrator, Dartmoor, Devon - 18th December 2005

It's the day after the Plymouth Polytechnic Alumni Reunion, and Nosher briefly stops off at Mother's gaff on the edge of Dartmoor. There's time for a bit of lunch at the old Chapel - still complete with its own graveyard - and a walk around nearby Burrator Resevoir, an oft-frequented haunt for the last 20 years, before the weather gently degrades into drizzle in a true Dartmoor style. After that, it's off on the 360-mile drive back to Suffolk

Mother and Mike in the kitchen at The Chapel

Mother potters around

Mike prepares something for lunch

The graveyard in the garden

Gravestones in the garden

Looking down the hill from the top of the graveyard

A cross in the ground

The favourite gravestone: Peace, Perfect Peace

The Chapel, and Hoo Meavy

The wintry garden

Alabaster statue

Another view of the chapel and its garden

Mother sets up lunch

Time for lunch

Raffles, the timid Italian Spinoni, eventually plucks up courage to venture in

Raffles begs for treats

Mike and Mother

Raffles lurks

A Dartmoor pony on the roadside near Clearbrook

Another pony - photography like a tourist

A stone-lined old aquaduct

On the dam at Burrator Resevoir

The ice-cream van is there, whatever the weather

A sluice valve

Some water control valves

Mike's on a styal

Mike roams around

Burrator Dam

Mother looks about

A pile of mossy rocks

Walking by the edge of the resevoir

Burrator resevoir

Some more derelict infrastructure

Mother waves

Mother in the pine trees

Mike stands on a wall

Mother and Mike look out

Secret Nuclear Bunker (possibly)

An optimistic ice-cream van braves the inclement weather

Raffles, the Italian Spinoni
