Autumn 2015Our autumn issue is out now in the shops! Behind the scenes we are all looking forward to an Exmoor autumn during which we hope to get a chance to enjoy some of the activities and events, people and places which are featured on our autumn pages.

In particular, it’s a great time of year to enjoy the local arts with so many festivals coming up and also a favourite season for walking. In this issue we have delights for walkers in every corner of Greater Exmoor; Jane Mares celebrates our waterfalls and ash trees across the area, Michelle Werrett explains the wonder of autumn leaf fall, Sue Viccars explores the landscape around Wiveliscombe and Avril Stone visits her local treasure trove, Braunton Burrows.

For our food and drink features our writers have travelled to Crediton to drink coffee, Braunton to feast on fish and chips, Sharcott Farm near Exford to forage for blueberries and Allerford to cook up a very special feast.

Sean Beer went over to Great Champson at Molland for us, to hear all about William and Henry Dart’s memories of showing, and Tony James visited Lisette de Roche of Priestlands Birch Products with Andrew Hobbs, as well as a number of other locations for our next issue – no rest for the wicked!

We hope that you enjoy all of this and more in the autumn issue. Happy reading!

Naomi, Elaine & Sue
