Camel-Teign Ivor's Dream 100 home page

Welcome to the Camel Teign Ivor's Dream 100 web site.

In early 2008, Ivor Kingwell, (our group social secretary and organiser of the Dartmoor Reservoir Kanters), came to the Cornwall and Devon Committee with his idea for our next hundred. It was clear from his presentation to the group at that meeting that he had already put in a lot of thought and done a huge amount of research. He felt strongly that the route should take in both counties.  His suggestion was for a walk that ran from coast to coast, across both counties and over both Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor – a true Cornwall and Devon Hundred.  He pulled out maps with 3 possible routes marked on them, each one meeting the required criteria. His enthusiasm, together with the effort he had already put in, so motivated those attending the meeting that evening, that the decision was made to allow Ivor to put in a “bid” to National Committee for around 2013 -2014 and if successful, front it as organiser. This he duly did and in mid- 2008 we were allocated the 2013 hundred.

Then, in November 2008, just as Ivor was putting together an executive group to move everything forward, he collapsed and died whilst out on a Scout walk on Dartmoor. This came as a real blow to the group. He had been at the committee meeting just days earlier and group members were stunned.  However, it very quickly became clear that this hundred would now be our group’s tribute to Ivor and resulted in the name Camel (Camel Estuary start) Teign (Teign Estuary finish) Ivor's Dream

We have heard a number of pronunciations of this event over the past few months, so, for those not familiar with the area, Teign is pronounced "Teen" as in Teenager, but Teignmouth is pronounced "Tinmuth"

On this page we will list the major updates we have made to the web site content as we make them. e.g, when we add additional pages, accommodation information etc. This should hopefully make it easier for entrants when they revisit the site to see if we have added the information they are looking for.
