Dartmoor Day Out ......make your way to Moretonhampstead.....parking in any of the town's car parks, reasonable charge couldnt believe it compared with Exeter.  TQ13 8LN Ford Street Gallery                                                                        TQ13 8LL  Greenhill Arts and Heritage Centre;  then as this was our second visit here over a year ago we remembered a great ceramics studio and was amazed our personal sat nav worked and we found it a little way down the main street 'Penny Simpson Ceramics' Court street; last time we had a wonderful chat with an amazing felt artist housed in an old Unitarian Chapel in Cross Street  'Bellacouche Felt'  unfortunately it was closed on our recent visit but along the way we re visited 'Green Shoes' all hand made shoes also in Cross Street.  There are numerous cafes you wont go thirsty or hungry, even the local butchers offer fresh homemade take away.  Our next place on the map was Chagford, and its a very pleasant drive through Dartmoor but would not have particularly done this again as the 1 gallery was quite small and the Artisan shop we caught just at lunchtime and it was shut.....however we found a delicious  delicatesance ..for a quick snack before we headed back down the same road back to Moretonhampstead where we took a different direction to Bovey Tracey, wonderful drive, very narrow in places but so typical of the valleys of Dartmoor.  The Devon Guild of Craftsmen at Bovey Tracey on our visit was showing a wealth of different things from Ceramics, Silk Printing, Wood Engraving Carved Leather, Enamel .......Amazing (Janine Partington)  Greyscale,Intaglio Print and more  it was wonderful.  Wouldn't it be lovely to have a budget for buying Art !!! i cant do it just waiting for the 1 family artist to provide me with a collection.  From here it is a very quick route back to Sidmouth by-passing Exeter.  If you decide to do this day out you will enjoy.
