Badgworthy Water

Click through the gallery below to discover two artists’ responses to the woods on the fringe of the moor

The woods at Badgworthy Water (Exmoor National Park) contain starkly-contrasting oak and conifer plantations. The oak trees have been managed for centuries to provide bark for tanning and charcoal for use as fuel and for iron smelting. When such uses declined some of the trees were felled and replanted with conifers. The surviving oak woods are home to birds including the pied flycatcher and the wood warbler
