There is a road that runs north from of the village of Westhay in Somerset. The OS maps call this Main Road. While Google maps calls it Blakeway. Before I noticed this conflict I always assumed the Blakeway was the name given to the road once it had passed the turnpike corner near to Sweats Tea Rooms.
I mention this because on the Main Road is a bridge called Westhay Bridge. This bridge is very popular because of its distant views of Glastonbury Tor looking down the River Brue. Add a bit of autumn morning mist and it gets even better.
Changing camera lens to my new telephoto. Now you can appreciate the connection between the tower on top of the Tor with the tower of the church at the village of Meare. Also in the morning light the picture came out orange! On beautiful mornings like today there are always people visiting the top of the Tor.
The Main Road (Blakeway) leading out of Westhay was once lined with trees. Now, not so many. I’m sure must be a reason for the cut back, but it not a good look. I assume many of these trees will quickly spring back?
One benefit from the missing trees is wide open views. In the neighbouring field buzzards perched on piles of manure. I guess for some free warmth.
This sometimes lead to a bit on fighting with the neighbours.
