Chatting to Sue a few days ago, we uncovered a place from her childhood and I said I had been there in the summer, many, many times in fact.
So these pics are for you Sue, sorry there isn’t one of the bridge.
Fingle Bridge is between Drewsteignton and Chagford in the Dartmoor National Park.
There’s lovely circular walk, with some rather steep parts calling at Castle Drogo, the last Castle built in England. You might prefer to paddle in summer, then have lunch at the Fingle Bridge Inn.

Drewsteignton, of course! Thanks for these, Gilly! I must now hunt an image of the bridge by Fingle words on the net!
Oh, and it was my early adulthood, not childhood, but I only went there once or twice…..alas
Nice thing to do, Gilly! Looks beautiful 🙂 🙂 I saw a wonderful photo today of the ceiling in Exeter Cathedral. Maybe I’ll get there one day.
Ahh darling I hope you do come to see it, it has amazing fan vaulting and you’d have the friendliest guide ever 🙂
Of that, I’m sure 🙂 🙂
Looks like a very tranquil place to be in the summer months.
A place for a fairytale, or a Sue, or two dogs. Stay safe and count the days!
Beautiful – brings back memories of my childhood as probably was the last time I was here!
