On the back road commute to a supply teaching day at Newton Abbott. Grey & drizzly. Ground saturated (radio news just reporting flood risk as aquifers are full after a wet month) Lots of big lane wide orange floods to drive slowly through on these lanes. Thick gloopy orange mud here amongst the cut turnip stalks on which orange stained sheep were grazing. Took a generous helping of the mud away with me on my shoes.Chris Pearson12/03/2024

Along Aptor Lane after parking on Ipplepen Rd. Arable field, with Carole Engel.jonglew24/02/2018
From north at start of green lane, just as it was getting dark. Well used muddy track, through gap in hedge and up to HP. Returned to lane just to SW of HP. Surprised no one had previously logged a visit.PeterD12/12/2017
