Anyone who alights at Newton Abbot railway station, must think that they've entered a world of paradise as they gaze across to Courtenay Park. It is a beautiful park.
It's also the park where I took my first steps, at 18 months old! (late walker, early talker!!).
Even the public loos are attractive!
It's a place with which you can never get bored!
A tall chimney signifies that the roof was once thatched...thus the chimney was taller in order to reduce the fire risk.
This building houses the famous 'Conker Shoes'. I zoomed in on the decorative features, which intrigued me. I need to investigate further!
Totnes has some wonderful shops :
In 'The Narrows' one of my faves is, 'This 'n That'...(where my dear DH found my old school desk, not too long ago.)
Not forgetting Gazebo, where all lovers of Cath Kidston and Greengate meet for their daily drool. ;-)
The walk back down the hill is easy! My sister bought this lovely quilt in a fairly new shop on 'The Plains' called, 'Inspired Buys'. I thought the quilt was very Amy Butler ish!
Here it is for all on Totnes station to admire!! ;-)
And my small purchases... I will blog tomorrow.... as that is enough for now ;-)
