Somerset Hills

Somerset Hills

in watercolours

“We walked slowly back to Roadwater (nestling in a cocoon haze of woodsmoke), along a track-road high above the Leighland valley - a small, chapel bell-tower just peeping above the fall of the fields. And beyond the coastal meadows; the blue, indistinct line of the Severn Sea, and a rainbow, presaging rain.”

Moving inland from the Somerset coast, this book covers the titled ranges of hills lying entirely within the borders of the historical county: the wide open heath and intimate combes of the Quantocks: the Brendons' deep valleys and wooded hills: the sun-capturing butterfly slopes of the Poldens: and the tougher landscape of Mendip's plateau, gullys and caves.
