A Dartmoor smile

I’ve recently been passing a field gateway on the Widecombe road that is being widened, presumably to allow larger tractors and other equipment into the field. Now stone gateposts have been put in and a small stretch of wall rebuilt. Today’s surprise was spotting that the new wall has a smile built in to it!


The full effect is still a bit hidden by a trailer, but it is definitely a smile. This has set me to wondering – are there any other smiles hidden in Dartmoor’s walls underneath the brambles?

    The wall doesn’t look finished yet…will there be eyes too I wonder! Great blog by the way…I’ve followed for a while and your take on happenings on the moor always brings a smile to my face.
