Warbstow Bury: Revisited, but by Someone Else This Time

Yes, I know, my last post was about Warbstow Bury but this one is deliberately made to draw your attention to a post by another blogger rather than me.Elizabeth Dale writes on Cornish Bird Blog about the historical sites of Cornwall, and researches and entertainingly recounts the many folk stories and histories attached to them.… Continue reading Warbstow Bury: Revisited, but by Someone Else This Time

Warbstow Bury

I tried to figure out which of the Dartmoor Tors is visible from the elevated and expansive view west from Warbstow Bury. It's a favourite dog walking spot, concentric but irregularly shaped rings of banks and ditches, from somewhere around a 500BC history.

However, I was just checking it finely for spot imperfections and I kept coming across little tiny black specks to be spotted out, just in case anyone ordered a print large enough to be able to see them.

Two Clifftop Views

The fields on the clifftops are no more or less productive than the inland ones, they just have a more spectacular background and there is always a cooling breeze running through the grasses and the crops.

Rusey Cliffs and Lundy

When I went out yesterday it was a little cloudy but bright. As I got to the beginning of the track that leads out to the coast path, where the view over the ocean opens out, I could see that there was a weather front just threatening to travel up the Bristol Channel and perhaps… Continue reading Rusey Cliffs and Lundy
