After the crossing from Guernsey to Poole, we stayed in a place called Uffculme in Devon.  To kick things off on Wednesday 27th June 2018, Christ Cross G/DC-005 was fairly nearby, and trivially easy, so we bagged that activation to start the day.  I operated on 20m CW, while Jimmy focused on 2m FM.  We both diverted onto 20m SSB for a S2S QSO opportunity.

We then drove down into Cornwall to complete England for a third time, courtesy of the newly designated Hensbarrow Downs G/DC-008.  First though, we revisited an old favourite of ours - the butcher/bakery in Roche for a freshly baked Cornish Pasty.
