Wickhampton Grazing Marshes

Berney Arms Windmill framed: 23 Sept 2020

Big Picture, another title achieved in Maria’s Antonia’s #2020picoftheweek

Where once was the Great Estuary, the confluence of three rivers, now are grazing marshes the support the sweetest grasses. In times past those grasses attracted drovers from the North, even from Scotland, who brought their cattle here to fatten for the London market. They attracted artists too. For where else in Britain can you find such a wide sky?
