The Opening of Chagford Lido, Chagford, Devon - 28th May 2016

After a night's lay-over at the Weston-super-Mare Premier Inn, it's off down the M5 to Spreyton - luckily catching only the tail-end of a 26-mile queue of slow-moving traffic. Almost immediately, we're then off to Chagford to witness the re-opening of the Chagford Lido, renovated thanks to local enthusiasm and Lottery money. These were also the photos that nearly weren't, as the camera they were taken on was "borrowed" by a small person and left in Grandma J's garden, prompting much searching and even a "lost camera" note in the Spreyton village shop.
