We lived in Chagford for over 30 years, during the time of our girl’s schooling and until they flew the nest. Locals argue about whether it’s a town or a village. It’s certainly one of those places where everyone knows everyone else, and the community spirit is strong.
On the Northern edge of Dartmoor it is in one of the most beautiful settings with hills, the River Teign, the National Trust property Castle Drogo, farming families and fresh air.
We moved to Exeter in 2016 to downsize the house and garden and to be close to Jennifer, our elder daughter and her family. But I have hundreds of photos of life on Dartmoor, and I want to show some of them off to remind folks of their lives a few years back.
