No mow May!

24th June 2021

The results of "no mow May". An initiative encouraged by Bug Life. By not mowing grassland it allows wild flowers to grow and encourages wildlife to flourish. With tall grass mixed with wild flowers and trees on each side of the railway cutting it is a perfect habit. This area will be kept wild until late September. Check out other great ideas to encourage wildlife at

  • Sights and smells - Cannot beat the smell and sound of a steam locomotive, a very scenic ride firstly along the beach, then along the river Dart. A couple of hours in Dartmouth then all aboard for trip back.
  • What a great day - Excellent trip on the steam train, very well covid organised and beautiful scenery on the way. The cruise trip was wonderful and very relaxing. The guys on the ship were very good and quite witty. Well worth the day out.
  • All lovely - All done very well. Everything clean (train/boats), staff friendly and commentary on the river cruise added a bit of fun. Really good day out, lots of families. Take hats, drinks and dogs! If you have one.
