    I joined mum and Richard for a family weekend at the home of William and Paula and the two boys, Oscar and Archie. We picnicked on Dartmoor, walked up one of the Taws, ambled along the river Torridge on Sunday afternoon, skimmed stones and sat in the autumn ...

    We arrive in a small village called Hittersleigh and immediately enter the small church throwing off our bags and attempting to dry and warm our hands. We spend 35 mins sitting here eating our mundane lunch of homity pies which ...

    ... s home in Worthing. Sure enough they have their dog called Badger, my surname, with them. We decide to hold off lunch and take a long and winding path down into Chagford, the Beatles song of the same name, sustains me.
