  Dartmoor Walking Festival 2016 The Festival will run from Saturday 27thAugust until Sunday 4th September 2016 inclusive and will cover all areas of Dartmoor and is open to everybody of all ages and abilities. It will be very clearly marketed as ‘Dartmoor on your Doorstep’ with this chosen time of year being the last week of the summer holidays encompassing the August Bank Holiday weekend to start it off and ending in the first week of September. This will hopefully allow our visitors to stay on the extra week in order to enjoy all that Dartmoor has to offer and also to encourage our locals to come out on the moors before the children go back to school. Our aims are much wider than just walking. There will be climbing, Nordic walking, evening presentations, taster sessions in all sorts of activities and much more. We are arranging four events each day during this nine day festival, ranging from modest guided strolls and children’s rambles to full day walks and ambitious challenges,  to suit all tastes and abilities.  There really is something for everyone! Making use of the local cycle trails will mean that those who use mobility scooters and ‘Trampers’ can also come along and enjoy Dartmoor. The Dartmoor Search and Rescue Group is also supporting the week and, if you have ever wondered what they do out in the dark when searching for missing walkers, then come and join them on an evening exercise to learn more! Off course you can also download from the internet many of the walks both leisurely or more strenuous and experience all the Moor has to offer to suite your own itinery. Don’t forget a car ride across the Moors is also an alternative, there are many villages to stop and have a cream tea if walking is not your thing. In case you need convincing, here are some photos taken on the moor by husband and wife Gillian and Derek Cranch. They love the Moor, go up most weeks and photograph views. These photos are ...

If you have visited Shaldon before you will be aware that it’s situated at the mouth of the River Teign. Across the River is Teignmouth which has a thriving port with coasters coming and going according to the tides.  Its main export is ball clay, which is mined locally at Kingsteignton. Imports include animal feed, fertilizer, timber, building materials, stone and coal. There are over 800 shipping movements a year handling more than 600 thousand tonnes of cargo. Keeping the channel navigable is an ongoing challenge and usually it’s done by a small dredger The Manning on a daily basis. Teignmouth Harbour Commission have invested have spent £250,000 to hire the MODI R, a 62 metre, 1700 tonne Danish vessel, for two weeks. The dredger is here to hoover up and any obsticles to the shipping channel with great pressision.  This long term investment will hopefully boost the local economy by encouraging larger modern vessels into Teignmouth. A guest in one of our holiday homes in Shaldon took this photo on a murky evening.  “ When I looked out last night a ghostly  sight, in the mist, and presumably working "as the  tide was right", ( to recognise the quote you need to go see Zebidiah Hook -the play performed on a Wednesday on the village green during August )....
