Everyday has been like a bank holiday, and with the mother of all bank holidays; a sunny end of August one, bearing down on us, it was time to leave the village against the incoming hordes and get up on the roof again. Ashcombe up to Prayway head and back down Lime combe to Simonsbath […]

It’s the end of summer and here’s the the way August has played out so far with warm downpours and gusty blows. In-between times there’s been big skies and solitary walks up on the moor. A reminder to all locals that you can escape the traffic jams, the Georgeham double decker bus queue, the Mortehoe […]

So busy at the beach. You have to walk for miles to get away from the utterly maddening crowd or escape the moor for some peace and space. Photo essay.                                                   […]

It’s been such a lovely summer, in fact almost magical, however as it draws to a close there is a last chance to enjoy it when most of the visitors have gone home. It’s early September and what better place for some peace and tranquility than Exmoor. Exmoor: still stuck in the fifties; like an […]

September’s here; the kids have gone back to school and the tourists have dragged their sad lives and caravans back home. It’s time to reclaim the moor. Here are a few pix from an evening drive out to have a picnic and see if we could find some of  Britians largest animal frolicing in the […]

It’s fifty shades of brown on the moor at the moment and if you are lucky enough to get it ‘all lit up’ by some weak winter sunshine; the mood becomes magical. To cap off another great drive on the moor with the indomitable Neil Osmond of Experience Exmoor, we caught these two young ladies […]

An impromptu visit to the moor on the way to a surprise birthday bash and we stumble into these two beauties, in velvet, wow, grazing in sheep pasture (ooops – bloody buggers, I’m sure they didn’t eat much, Mr Psychopath Subsidy-Farmer ). It’s typical isn’t it, you’ve starved yourself all day and are gagging for […]
