Whisky Walk Meeting Place - Trowlesworthy Warren - Cadover Bridge
THE WHISKY WALK
and for those true navigators amongst you that can read a chart but not photos.
The Whisky Walk is traditionally held on the Sunday nearest the 27th of March when
the club was first convened. About a half mile up the river Plym from the Trowlesworthy
car park is a large rock which has been named Langs Rock after the Club House. Here
we toast the river Plym allowing the river to have its tot. When the bottle is empty
everybody attending signs their name on a sheet of paper which is put in the empty
bottle (that is why it is necessary to ensure the bottle is drunk dry). The previous
years bottle is dug up and the list retrieved and the latest bottle buried in its
place to be retrieved the next year. We have had odd occasions when the burial place
has been forgotten and the area has had extensive excavations to find it Another
time a sniffer dog attached to the club was used. On yet another occasion the bottle
was later moved by some younger members of the club and replaced by their smaller
bottle as they had been unable to attend the original ceremony.
