Photographer's Note

We were traveling the country road between Ashreigney and Winkleigh in Mid Devon when the heavy summer rain stopped and the sun began to re-appear.

To the purists I apologise,I didn`t notice the telegraph wires until after the upload!

In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Ashreigney like this:

ASHREIGNEY, or Ring's-ash, a parish in Torrington district, Devon; 4 miles WNW of Eggesford r. station, and 4 WSW of Chumleigh. Post Town, Chumleigh. Acres, 5,663. Real property, 3,718. Pop., 842. Houses, 169. The property is subdivided. The parish was a rendezvous of Fairfax in 1646, prior to his attack on Torrington. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Exeter. Value, 335.* Patron, the Rev. J. T. Johnson. The church is an ancient structure, of nave, chancel, and south aisle, with low square tower. Charities, 10.
