taken 11 years ago, near to Westhay, Somerset, Great Britain

Fields at Westhay
Fields at Westhay
Across the foreground, the black line of material dredged up during ditching indicates the presence of peat in this area. The landscape is completely flat for two or three miles until the hill on which stands the prominent white house known as Castle Farm at Heath House. (The hill is locally known as the Isle of Wedmore, betraying a past when the Levels were all water.)
Invisible in this picture, the River Brue runs between embankments, approximately where the red farm vehicle and cows are. It becomes very visible in times of flood.
