Dartmoor.As threatened yesterday !
From Haytor we headed towards Widdecombe, stopping en route for a walk in an unidentified area. I'm sure it has a name but there is none marked on my road map. The fresh air and the views were wonderful -
Widdecombe church, built with the local granite and such a tall bell tower !
The soil level inside the churchyard wall is much higher than outside ! I took this picture with my camera on top of the wall to include some of the tiny wild flowers in the grass that grows there -
Sometimes you find an old Devon longhouse ( with additions) as you drive along. I loved the lines of the roof ridge on thatold part of the house ! A longhouse is one where it 'grew' as needed with another room being added on the end of the single story dwelling.
