MERRIVALE BRIDGE

Memories of 50 years ago - coming down to Merrivale Bridge, Dartmoor, in an Atkinson 8 wheeler. We had delivered to Chard Junction and Moretonhampstead

and we were on our way to our next drop at Tavistock.

I often wish we could do those few delivery trips together all over again. It's not to be, so this is the only way to make it happen

- a PAINTING! - but us two as we are today, and with a modern take on the old Atki.

"A painting is the most beautiful of lies"

Kees Van Dongen, Painter, 1877-1968
