It’s been cold on Exmoor over the past few days. There have even be a few flurries of snow, a hoar frost and quite a bit of ice. A number of photographers were able to capture the magic landscapes as well as the bleakness of the moor. You can see them on our social media pages, but we are also going to post some here on the blog.
This photo by Debbie Tucker had the most reactions across all platforms. It is quintessential Exmoor in winter.

On a chilly winter’s morning deep in the valley a frosted village sits whilst the sun rays slowly rise at Withypool, Exmoor.
Withypool is a small village in Somerset, England, near the centre of Exmoor National Park and close to the border with Devon. The word Withy means “willow”. Withypool is in the Barle Valley on the River Barle. The village lies on the route of the Two Moors Way and the Celtic Way Exmoor Option.
To the southwest of the village lie Withypool Common and Withypool Hill.
Thanks for looking, Rich.
