Sunday Selfies an adventure!

Hehehe I kinda Moved in this one hehehe nevermind eh?This was taken at a special place we hadn't been before,so I'm going to show you all the photos Mum took at a beauty spot called Badgers Holt,Dartmeet.We went there a week or to ago when we were having nice weather.
This is by the river at Badgers Holt



If you look toward the end of the path you can see the remains of an old Clapper Bridge and a bit behind the modern bridge with the road on it.Clapper Bridges were an ancient type of bridge,most were built in the medieval times but some predate the beginning of the medieval period,there are quite a few on Dartmoor and in Devon,there is even a small one at my dads friends farm still intact.the one at Badgers Holt would have looked a bit like this one when it was still intact at Postbridge.
Mum found this photo on wikipedia of the on at Postbridge
 And she found these on google of the one at Badgers Holt Dartmeet,Just so you could see it close up

And this one is of the river taken by mummy with a little google Magic,mummy has yet to upload the video's she took,but she will I promise.

We are joining the Cat on My Head's Sunday Selfies!

  4. I have never been there, but my mum said she has very often. My dad originally came from Widecombe in the Moor and they go through Badgers Holt on the way there.

  25. What a beautiful place! It is very interesting to see bridges like that. One of the crazy things about living in the US is that there is no ancient history really. The Native Americans didn't build structures that lasted over long periods of time. It would be really interesting to experience old things like that.

  26. We love the pictures and what a lovely place to visit. Sometimes we drive a ways into Kentucky to Shaker Village and we see stone walls built in the early 1800s not as old as your bridges but we find it interesting how they have stood up to time.
    Thanks for being a friend

  30. Your little rump is very cute!
    It's wonderful that you get to go on so many adventures. Your mom must not be worried about you getting any diseases or parasites being out in all those new places. My mom worries about me getting germs in my own back yard!
