Top to Bottom
It may have been blowing a gale today but I wanted to walk around Lynchcombe. I am a volunteer warden for the Somerset Wildlife Trust so a quick walk around would allow me to check the site. Somehow it turned into a family walk from the top of Mendip all the way down to the community shop in Westbury-sub-Mendip at the bottom.
At the top there is a view across to Lynchcombe from near the Deerleap picnic site. A large old hawthorn tree had blow down nearby – such a shame. So I included this much younger one as my foreground interest.
The best thing about Lynchcombe is its views south across the Somerset Levels.
Fabulous views over Westbury-sub-Mendip to the Axe valley and beyond.
There were plenty of sheep in the combe to see the view.
At the bottom of the combe, you can continue down Lynchcombe lane all the way into Westbury-sub-Mendip.
There are some very pretty cottages in the village – especially now the spring daffodils out.
Church of St Lawrence
In the churchyard there is a carpet primroses and some more daffodils.
In the wind the daffodils were blowing around everywhere.
Once at the bottom it was time to pull ourselves back up to the top – luckily the wind was so strong it virtually blow us all the way back.
