Some photo's of what remains of the old medieval church at Bicton which was partially destroyed by the owners so that they could build themselves a new mausoleum. Cold today, snows in London for the first time in seventy odd years at this time of year and it is dark now at five o clock. Hope for the best but prepare for the worst.

Some photo's taken recently of the view from Muttersmoor looking towards Budleigh and in the direction of the Haldons and Dartmoor. The other two were taken a couple of weeks ago near Broadhembury. When I see the view from up there it really does look like I live on the edge of the world.

Then in the last two weeks of September, when all the holiday makers have gone and all the children are back at school we have about two weeks of solid sunshine. Last Sunday I finally made it to Salcombe beach (where these photo's weren't taken) on the last day of the good
weather. The sun was lovely but the wind was beginning to have a chill to it, telling us that summer had passed.
These were taken on a hill near Yettington in East Devon. It was early evening and the air was very still. The first thing that I noticed was that there was hardly any birdsound, it was almost totally silent. As we carried on walking we heard the odd rook and a few other birds and then I remembered that a lot of the birds had probably already flown south for the winter.
