Arise at sunrise.
I awake to another tent on site, how dare they! Two guys planning to walk the width of all three moors, Bodmin Moor, Dartmoor and Exmoor. For the British Heart Foundation over the next three days, quite some distance.
Today, leaving my tent at the farm, and touring the moor with my two smaller front panniers mounted to the rear rack.
Visiting Temple Church, takes you back in time.
The back roads from Temple Church, could not connect me to the Colliford Lake road. Again, poor mapping on my part! So bike over the fence, and cross country to Colliford tavern for a coffee and snack.
I pass Colliford Lake dam, on-route to St.Neot. From St.Neot following the southern roads off the moor back to Blisland.
Next time I will certainly purchase Ordinance Survey maps. As the roads are up and down, more up, than down! At least, after some aggressive hills commuting to work, not too much of an ordeal.
The Post Office stores at Blisland shut (Sunday!) So tried The Blisland Inn for grub. Kitchen closed as it’s late afternoon. So my meal consisted of three large Scotch eggs, hate them at the best of times, pork scratching’s and a pint of Guinness. Not so bad!
A few miles back to the campsite.
Greeted back at the campsite by a rafter of turkeys.
First thing; get a ‘brew’ on the go.
