Snow at Court Down
“Just a reminder of Mondays wonderful weather over Court Down as we seem to be back to grey skies. Noticed a few traces of planes around in the sky. Keep cheerful, keep well.”Alan Ottey

Dusk at the Valley of Rocks
Rebecca Crush went for a late afternoon walk at the Valley of Rocks and took these photos for us:
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:

Photo of the Week
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.
