Its that time of year when many of us stop to remember all those who have lost their lives in conflict. On Monday, Elizabeth led 10 of the Amblers on a lovely walk in Lydford towards Widgery Cross. Despite the recent deluge of rain we were very lucky, it was bright with mostly clear skies.
As we were making our way back, David reminded us of the presence of a commemorative plaque to Captain Hunter, with one of his poems, sited at Black Rock overlooking a waterfall and pool on the River Lyd, beneath Brat Tor with Widgery Cross in the distance.
As Imogen was taking a photo of the plaque David told how he had previously visited Captain Hunter’s grave in France taking a piece of Dartmoor with him.
We stood and looked across the landscape and gazed on the cross at Widgery Tor.
