Teignmouth & The Ness, Devon. Teignmouth & The Ness, Devon.

The wind feels cold against the sweat of my back when I take the pack off to reach for the camera. I’m becoming a connoisseur of mud – today it’s redder, stickier and less slippery than previously.

I’m surprised that Powderham Castle and estate is actually lived in today by the Earl of Devon rather than surviving as a conference centre or National Trust enterprise.
