It was another of those rather rare, nice sunny days, yesterday and another brief tour onto the Somerset Levels seemed appropriate. We decided to take a quick look to see what Westhay Moor looked like after the storms. To be honest, it didn’t look very different to usual. During the tour, I spotted this row of pollarded willows and thought that there might be a photo in them.
A careful look at the road surface shows quite well the common feature of roads in this part of Somerset, that is the subsidence, which I guess is caused by the continual soaking and drying of the peat on which they are built.
