Autumn Winsford

Autumn Winsford - Exmoor
A frost covers the valley walls but higher up the rising sun slowly melts it at Winsford. The Winsford name comes from the ford across the Winn Brook, where it meets the River Exe. There are eight bridges, providing crossing points over the many small streams that run through the village; one is a packhorse bridge, which is thought to be several hundred years old. The Vicarage Bridge is 42 inches (1,100 mm) wide and 30 feet (9.1 m) long. Winsford Common is situated in a hollow in the surrounding countryside (which itself is within a valley), somewhat akin in shape to that of a punch bowl, and thus has gained the name of The Punchbowl.
