Walking Lands End to John o'Groats - Launceston Friday 01 May 2015
Miles walked today: 11
Total miles: 106
Gary (photo below) told us at breakfast that the bull, a local feature, is called "Scrunch." He lives in a house with a local man and likes nothing better than to watch TV and have his belly rubbed.
Gary also said that a week ago Tim Burton spent two days filming Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children right outside the Cheesewring. The famous director and a huge retinue were often in the pub and Gary's wife spilt beer all over the great man and his PA...
Our walk to Launceston was damp and drizzly. A short day as Tina travels home tomorrow :(
The afternoon is brighter and after finding a room at the White Hart we explore the town.
There is a gallery:
in rooms above the old town walls full of amazing art and we talk to the proprietors for ages. All the amazing paintings, glass, ceramics and fabrics are the work of the husband and wife team.
Later we get coffee in a farm shop (shades of Borchester) where we are served by a very friendly and chatty woman. I wonder if her name is Helen? Launceston is just our sort of town, full of nooks and crannies. The ideal place for a B&B :)
