I have to say that the northern approach into Nunney is far preferable to the southern departure. As Peter Titchmarsh so rightly proclaims, the village certainly does possess an uncanny ‘French’ feel to it.

And this is where I spent the night, just down the road from the White Hart Inn at Trudoxhill. Lilac Cottage. This was absolutely fantastic bed and breakfast accommodation and cannot be too highly recommended. (01373 836222) It is directly on route and you have an entire wing of the house completely to yourself, with a large bathroom, bedroom and living room. (The door on the left is your own entrance). Top class for the weary traveller.


I left quite early and was amazed by the extent of wildlife I encountered, that morning, including a large herd of wild deer that I stumbled upon in the amusingly titled ‘Nutty Coppice’. In this neck of the woods there are a plethora of small, hedged fields, and in my experience most contained horses. Felt like I was on a gigantic chess board until I poked my head out here, at the railway crossing opposite Witham Hall Farm.

Good job I remembered to pick the camera up after taking this!
