Devon Sunset

I know how people love sunset pictures, and I’m pretty lucky as my camera takes some good ones. So here’s a couple from my recent holiday in North Devon. We were staying just outside a picturesque little village called Witheridge, between Tiverton and South Molton. Witheridge is remote and very quiet, and set deep amongst rolling hills, midway between the National Parks of Exmoor to the north, and Dartmoor to the south. It is therefore often referred to as the ‘Gateway to the Two Moors Way’. The name Witheridge originates in Old English, and means ‘weather ridge’, probably because it is situated about 600 feet above sea level, on the top of a hill, in a very exposed position. If you do pass through Witheridge, the sixteenth century Mitre Inn is worth a visit, with lovely food and friendly service.
