County Gate

A golden landscape from a autumn in full colour whilst deep in the valley walls two homes slowly loose the afternoon light at County Gate, Exmoor.
County Gate, as the name suggests is where Devon and West Somerset meet. Its location offers great views over the East Lyn valley and Doone Country. There are several energetic walks from here into Doone Country or down to the coast.

Exmoor Gallery: November 2016 – Part 1

So many of our followers on Facebook and Twitter shared their outstanding images with us, that we thought it would all be too much in one big file for the month.  Here is therefore the gallery of all photos posted in the first week of November. The next gallery, containing this week’s photos, will be published in a week.

Sit back and enjoy!

The narrow lane meanders down from Porlock Hill towards Oare in Lorna Doone country.  At the bottom of the hill, next to a picturesque car park, Robber’s (or Robbers) Bridge crosses Oare Water. It is an old masonry arch bridge, well worth a visit for a picnic or a paddle in the river.
