Lew Wood, near Coryton

Beautiful sunshine on the new beech leaves yesterday during my morning walk with the mut.

How lucky we are.

Bristle Bent Grasses at Knack Mine, Steeperton on Dartmoor

I've just been writing up about Steeperton Tor, and its nearby tinners hut (brilliantly preserved) and mining activity (fascinating).

I wanted to share this photograph of the almost indiscernible mine platform of Knack Mine (originally called Wheal Virgin, in 1799).

The tinner's hut even has a little cubby hole shelf at one end.
