Ponies, potholes and the Dartmoor Hunt

At the outset my aim was to catalogue the sadly neglected roads here in South Devon but the lure of the Moors overtook that agenda. A chill January wind from the North West threatens cold weather ahead.   Road maintenance savings, like NHS savings, can only be a false economy.

The climb up to Grimspound

Driving onto the moor via Bovey Tracey to Widdecomb then passing Grimspound on towards Princetown then heading back via Holn where the Dartmoor hunt was meeting at the Forrester Inn. I was fortunately wearing the right drab gear for a hunt and my camera went unnoticed.
