A very windy morning for our walk out from Norsworthy Bridge. John took us to the rock where underneath and hidden away was a giant pencil. A geocache with geocaching treasures inside.
We took the path out to....
...Cuckoo Rock and then on to...
....what is left of Combeshead Farm. William Pengelly was the last resident who lived on this farm until he died aged 90 in 1931. Keith produced a photograph of the farm as it was in 1934.
The main track into the farm with Sheeps Tor in the distance.
Next to the top of Eylesbarrow to inspect the new 'Cobra Head' which was installed on 25th March. This was made in Princetown to replace the original which was stolen last year in an act of vandalism.
The marker, originally one of four placed on the moor in the latter part of the nineteenth century and know as a 'cobra head' due to its unusual shape. The original posts were first recorded in the Ordnance Survey boundary book in 1881.
After a break we returned around the northern edge of Combeshead Tor.
Lunch in the Devon Tors. With Keith, Sue, John, Jon, Brenda and Linda.
I took my camera with me but left the battery behind! So todays photos were taken with my phone.
