Fine example of a Brendon Hills 'hedge tunnel'
The photo doesn't actually quite convey how tunnel-like the scene felt on this comparatively sunny day. Hence the reason it seemed like a good idea to put the car's hazard lights on, to warn other vehicles entering this downhill sideroad grotto.

The Brendon Hills have some of the highest hedgerows I've seen anywhere in the UK. Presumably, they are intended to act as natural snow-fences for the protection of outwintering livestock.
