After such a beautiful morning mist I wanted to show how the view changes when the sun comes out.  Stopping off at Cucklington on my cycle home from work.

The road above the village has the perfect bench to get you off your bike have a rest and enjoy the long views.

Cucklington

The tiny village of Cucklington sits near the Dorset border in south Somerset on a steep ridge that over looks the Blackmore Vale.  It is home to just a couple hundred people.

The Church of St Lawrence near the top of the ridge has great views across the vale.

A reminder of this view early in the morning when the church looked more like a lighthouse out at sea.

I like the wooden bell tower, there is a similar one on Templecombe church on the over side of the vale.  Something to investigate?
