Photo of the Week: Cornham Brake

Sarah Hailstone took this photo of this classic Cornham Brake view on a gorgeous Spring day last week. On Facebook alone it had close to 1,700 reactions (likes, comments and shares). In total it reached 42,000 people. That’s not even taking into account how many people saw this beautiful photo on our Instagram account.

Photo of the Week: Bossington Beach

Matt Dunkley’s photo of the view from Bossington Hill along Bossington Beach and across Porlock Way towards Exmoor’s North Devon coast in the far distance was one of the most popular images across all our social media in the past few weeks. We hope you enjoy it as much as the thousands of people who ‘liked’ and shared this photo.

Memories of Exmoor

With the weather having gone back to being grey, damp and cold, it is nice to look back at photos which show Exmoor under a warm, blue sky. Sarah Hailstone and her dog Jack go for (very) long walks across Exmoor every day. Sarah runs her own blog (Discover Exmoor with Jack) and regularly very kindly shares her photos with us.

Now sit back and dream of Exmoor….

The walk to Pinkery

Situated not far off the B3358 between Challacombe and Simonsbath, Pinkery Pond is a remote catchment of water at the headwater of the River Barle on The Chains. It was built for the Knight family around 1830 – John Knight had purchased at public tender the 10,262 1/4 acre former royal forest of Exmoor in August 1818 and began what became the largest single land reclamation project in England.

Nicola Kemp went for a wintery walk at the beginning of January 2021 and shared these photos with us:
