The Beth Chatto Gardens
The Beth Chatto Gardens - Woodland Garden. The Beth Chatto Gardens began in 1960. From an overgrown wasteland with poor gravel soil and boggy hollows, it has been transformed into an informal garden harmonising with the surrounding countryside. The gardens are an inspiration to anyone who visits them - the art of planting at its best.
Moor Brook, Dartmoor What a heavenly afternoon. The East Okement Valley, on Northern Dartmoor, was filled with the smoky-blue haze of Gorse burning (swayling) on the open moor. The light through the woods was amazing, shafts of sunlight kept appearing through the branches of the trees and then vanishing as quickly as they had appeared.
