A frosty morning at Hawkridge

And slowly the golden light brings warmth to the ice cold still valley whilst the occupants of the small stone house sleep tight at Hawkridge, Somerset, Exmoor.

The civil parish, known as Withypool and Hawkridge, covers 3,097 hectares (7,653 acres), includes the village of Hawkridge and has a population around 201. The parish is located 4 miles N.W. of Dulverton, and 9 W. of South Molton. The village, which is very small and wholly agricultural, is situated on a hill above the small river Dun, which here divides Devonshire from Somerset.
