SU4855 : Track above Hare Warren by Andrew Smith
Looking down into the Hare Warren/Ashley Warren valley. The foot of a tall pylon can be seen and also, if you look closely, one of the smaller ones. The track is the public footpath that climbs onto Ladle Hill.

SS9646 : Mossy Bridge by Rob Farrow
The area of Minehead on the western side along the old Porlock Road is known as The Parks. There is indeed a long thin park that runs parallel to the road on the southern side. From the eastern end the pathway through this park is accessed via this mossy little bridge. The bridge is crossing a quite fast-flowing brook (see SS9646 : Brook & Footbridge, The Parks, Minehead) which is flowing West-to-East (right to left in the photo) having been fed by streams rising to the west of Bratton.

ST3029 : The Sun by Adrian Boliston
The centrepiece of the Somerset Space Walk. I am trying to calculate the "scale" of the model. I walked as far as Jupiter which was about a mile away from the sun, but in reality it's almost 500 million miles, so I'd say 1:500 million but I have heard 1:50 million quoted.

SU4829 : Winchester City Mill. by Clive Warneford
National Trust property. Open to the public. This working Mill is a fine example.

TQ9220 : St Mary's Church,   Rye by Elliott Simpson
One of the two Quarter Boys with a Quarter Bell - so called because they are rung every quarter hour - one bell at quarter past, both bells at the half hour and three chimes at quarter to the hour.

TQ2904 : 20 The Drive by Simon Carey
Halfway up the section of The Drive between Church Road and Eaton Road are these two decorative Victorian houses. The first, 20 The Drive, is famous for being the family home of Ivy Compton Burnett between 1897 and 1914. The second is Arundel House with its mock gothic towers. Both are now sets of flats.

SU2900 : Ponies shading on Setley Plain, New Forest by Jim Champion
This behaviour (standing perfectly still for a long time) is known as "shading", even though here the ponies are standing in the midday sun. In the summer this is usually to avoid flies which aren't such a problem out in the open where it is windy.
by Jim Champion
