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.
