Buckfast Abbey to Ivybridge
Day 4: Friday 24th April. Another fine day for walking.
Near to Buckfast I saw a large and unusual butterfly, an escapee from the nearby Butterfly farm maybe.
Then on over the Clapper Bridge at Harbourneford, used by pilgrims of past centuries and showing signs of much use on the granite slabs.
I arrived in Ivybridge just after 2 p.m. and after leaving my rucksack at the inn went to explore the town. (I had booked ahead here as there is very little in the way of B&B near to my route) They serve evening meals so I am well fed again and looking forward to the last stage on the way to Plymouth. The weather could be wet tomorrow (Saturday 25th) so I may be glad of my poncho.
