Kingswear

The Chagford Clangers

It’s Haze’s unofficial birthday today (birthday not actually until Monday)

We’ve driven down to Kingswear and gone up a dry creek (without a paddle, or wellies)

There’s been some top class Hazey waving at puff puff trains again.

There was a big seal chomping down mackerel by the quay; unfortunately, we were ferrying over to Dartmouth so I couldn’t see him/her very clearly.

Church bells had been clamouring away all afternoon. Why? Turns out it was a bell ringing competition in St Saviour church: the 8 Bell Final featuring teams of local campanologists.

Here I am swaying around and around to the Chagford Ringers (or Clangers). Made me go all swirly giddy them did.

(Ear muffs will be required when listening to this vid).

I don’t know if Chagford were victorious though.

But they won my Gold Medal Moment of the afternoon award.

Words & Vid: Ian Nisbet.
