Near the Tor
The ancient Tor in Glastonbury
is visible from many Somerset villages. If you can see the Tor, you are never lost.
A familiar sight in rural Somerset. It is such a joy to turn a corner and find sheep slowly taking a shortcut through the village.
The most beautiful county in England and the place of my birth. I love the little villages and farms and I never tire of driving the narrow lanes. I always marvel that such a small country can have so many long vistas of green open space.
Recently we took the train from London to Bath. Breaking through the trees and seeing that golden Georgian city was spectacular. Bath is magnificent.
One of my favourite Somerset towns.
I have painted the famous Tor many times but this is the lovely town from the other direction, set in the ‘70’s;
a period of time I enjoyed in Britain.
