Princetown Walk

There was a fantastic turnout for the Princetown walk on Sunday 19th, 20 people and dogs! Great to see everyone!

The day started with a tour around the French Napoleonic and American prisoner of war memorial grounds by our very knowledgeable and amusing tour guide Graham (Museum Curator), then back to the Museum for a very interesting look into the history of the prison and prisoners of the past, some very gruesome bits too. Some of us took a very short gander at the Prison Reservoir which had been recently updated (it was mostly barred off part way so we could not walk all the way round). By then we were all feeling a little cold so retreated to the welcoming warmth of the Plume of Feathers Inn for a much needed alcoholic beverage and a delicious carvery lunch.

After lunch some souls walk to the Foggintor Quarry via the disused railway line braving the drizzle and misty weather. Thanks to all for making this a very enjoyable day!
