A Walk in the Woods

Horner Wood is an ancient wood pasture on the National Trust’s Holnicote Estate. Some trees are up to 500 years old. It is the habitat for an abundance of wildlife and could tell many stories.  You’ll see pollarded oak trees on your walk through the woods and hopefully spot some Red Deer. Horner Wood used to provide locals with fuel, winter fodder and wood for their tools. Today it is a perfect place to get away from it all.

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!

Show me the way….

301 Bob Small Show me the way

Well now I’ve been officially told not to walk up any steep hills or uneven ground for 6 weeks while under physio for my ankle that has plagued me since Feb, I took a drive across the top of Exmoor today to a few favourite spots accessible right next to the road..
This is a tree that’s much shot, due to the way it shows exactly where the prevailing winds head!
