Visiting Sis in Changford, Devon - 9th April 2007

Following a couple of days visiting Mother and Mike near Yelverton, on the south side of Dartmoor, it's time to head across the moor to the north side to see Sis and Matt at their new (ish) pad in Chagford. As well as milling around Chagford for a bit and having the odd beer in the local, there's plenty of walking around involved - and the opportunity to be nearly run over by Jennifer Saunders' Porsche - in the nearby countryside, and around Fernworthy Resevoir.
