Porlock and Okehampton

The Thatcher's art!
Not sure I've seen it anywhere else, but here in Somerset on cottages with thatched roofs, the thatcher makes a thatched bird to stop real birds pinching the thatch to make their nests! 
In Porlock, Somerset, there is a cottage with something different..........

Three Little Ducks!
and a Sail Boat!

The gnarled tree in Porlock Churchyard

Something else seen Okehampton this plaque is to commemorate
The Battle of Trafalgar

Across Dartmoor from Tavistock to Okehampton

Back in Medieval times pigs were allowed to roam and scavenge
the streets during daylight hours in Okehampton
