Last weekend The Curate and I visited the Spring fair in the moorland town of Moretonhamstead. After the winter, the fair heralded Spring with a celebration of food, drink and the arts. The town was buzzing with visitors, live music and market stalls which were selling a wide variety of Devon food and drink. The art trail around the town gave us the opportunity to see the work of local artists. We were fascinated by this ancient forge behind one of the cottages - I wonder how many years this workshop has been in use.We passed these ornate railings on the way into the village - the mouse was at one end and the bird at the other. I loved these unexpected details.
It was interesting to see the church being used as a central venue for an art display and musical events. It caused me to do some serious thinking.......but more of that on another blog!
