Wilmersham Common Winsford Hill

Click through the gallery below to discover four artists’ responses to the heath-covered commons in the heart of Exmoor

Three Bronze Age barrows and the 6th-century Caratacus Stone are reminders of the long history of human activity in these places. On the commons are hawthorn trees festooned with ‘string of sausage’ lichen. From the highest point of Winsford Hill the views reach to Dartmoor and the Blackdown Hills.
