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
