Blackmore Vale

The Blackmore Vale offers visitors wide views which harmoniously mix dairy cows in lush meadows, rolling cornfields, pretty cottage gardens, orchards and hedgerows alive with songbirds. It has some of the finest farmland in England which remains, to this day, wonderfully unspoilt and peaceful.

In his book “Remains of the Day”, renowned Japanese author Kazuo Ishiguro describes the English countryside, as seen by his main character, with the following words:

…but if I were forced to hazard a guess, I would say that it is the very lack of obvious drama or spectacle that sets the beauty of our land apart. What is pertinent is the calmness of that beauty, its sense of restraint. It is as though the land knows of its own beauty, of its own greatness, and feels no need to shout it.

It would be inappropriate to waste more words……… please enjoy some photos of the Blackmore Vale as we know it today in the hope that common sense will prevail and that the Vale may remain unspoilt for future generations to enjoy…
