Our first stop heading south on the A382, however, was in Bovey Tracey to visit the Devon Guild of Craftsmen, which organizes the upcoming Contemporary Craft Festival, which we have tickets to attend on our last day here. The work at the Guild is of the highest caliber and there was much to tempt us . . . however, with firm resolve to wait until the Craft Festival we walked out without purchases. Pretty amazing, huh?
Continuing on the A382, we reach Newton Abbott to rummage around a reclamation yard. Amidst laughter, inspiration and general tomfoolery, we found all kinds of wonderful treaurers . . . if only we had a property here to decorate.
Funnily, it was quiz night at the pub. The bar was relatively empty tonight, tho' all through our meal we'd hear outbreaks of laughter. Peeking into a larger room, we saw scores of folks — all ages — posing questions and noisily shouting out answers. We soon discovered it was the community's version of Trivial Pursuit . . . though at The Cleve, patrons make up their own questions.
