There can be no greater pleasure than a stroll around a small, Devon town, on a Sunday,
especially on a sunny, spring day.
This morning, it was Bovey Tracey which took our fancy....as did this superb mosaic,
situated on a wall near the top end of the town.
It's a reminder of the history of Bovey Tracey:
In 1260, the Market and Fair Charter was signed
by Henry III.
In 1646, The Battle of Bovey Heath took place, during the English Civil War,
ending in a victory for Cromwell's army.
There is, of course, plenty more history in Bovey Tracey !
This is The Riverside Mill and flowing alongside it is the River Bovey.
Apparently, the building wasn't actually used as a mill. It was built as a stable.
and the water wheel collected water, to be used in the stables.
This restored mill is home to The Devon Guild of Craftsmen.
We took a break there, for coffee, this morning.
But I have to say that for me, the appearance of so many splashes of yellow
around the town, was the most cheery and welcoming sight.
