This is the place in Devon that I was telling you about

I ought to show where Lydford is; it's here:
This was a picture I took at exactly this time last year, showing that it doesn't always rain on Dartmoor:
 The flowers are called milkmaids.
And I love this sign which looks as though it has spent too long at the Castle Inn (excellent pub, by the way, and the only place you can get an internet connection.  I've had to spend a lot of time there.)  The name of the street commemorates the mint that used to be here in the Saxon era.  Alas, the name itself doesn't have quite that pedigree: it was dreamt up in the second half of the twentieth century.  The site of the mint isn't known.
But enough photographs...
They do make me want to be in Devon though.  Not before Easter, sadly.  Still, I'll be in the Cotswolds tomorrow: not so shabby as the boys would say.
