Slade Farm/Sherberton Pony Stud Reunion

The purpose of this resource is to honour the memory of the late Mrs Mildred Coaker, former inhabitant of Sherberton Pony Stud and eventually, Slade Farm, Hexworthy, Dartmoor - and to provide a focus for the many people who enjoyed holidays there from the 1950s - until 1976.

SLADE July 2014

I have given this its own folder so you don't stumble across it by accident . . . . . . There may be mixed feelings among you as to whether or not you want to see Slade other than the way you remember it. Indeed, I was unsure how I felt when Peter kindly invited me to visit in July of 2014.
In my case, I should not have worried. Slade has grown - as we all have - and there was much to fondly remember as well as alterations that are definate improvements. So all in all - an old friend that I was very pleased to see again . . . .

Coombestone Panorama

Just ONE picture in here. Its a panorama taken just below the Tor on the Slade side. 14 pictures stitched together.
Use the arrow keys to pan left or right, a screenful at at time. It DOESN'T scroll all the way round.
Quite a good idea of what its like up on the Moors . . . .

Winter on the Moors

For those of us with rose-tinted glasses (Like Me!), who would love to live on the Moors - Here's the flip-side to those Summers we remember so fondly. Here is a world of "impassability", short days and long nights of COLD. REAL chances of being "snowed-in" and running out of supplies. But breathtakingly Beautiful, nevertheless . . .
