Blonde One and I love being in Princetown. Even more so since we have started to get to know some of its people. In the sunshine, it can be very pleasant to sit outside on a bench and watch the Princetown world go by.
I think, however, that I have only done this once. That is because, more often than not, Princetown sits in its very own cloud.
You have to love a town who’s main colour is grey, it would be cruel not to. The thing that we Blonde’s can’t work out is how Princetown can be in mist when the rest of the moor is clear. The town stands at 414 metres but is neither the lowest or highest point around. If any Cleather-Weather-Bods are out there, do please share your wisdom!
You have to wonder why anyone would build a town in the middle of a cloud, but maybe they didn’t, maybe the cloud appeared after they had built the town; conjured up by NIMBY pixies who, not really liking the invasion, were trying their best to lead people astray into Fox Tor Mire never to be seen again.
There are lots of really clear paths across the moor around Princetown. But be warned if you are planning to walk off them – the pixies and the mist will be out there waiting!
