Photographer's Note

Taken in Beer, a small Devon seaside village.

Taken from the net.

The town name Beer, has its origins in the old English words for woodland - bere and beare - due to dense nature of the forestation around the town in times gone by.
Beer was contructed on a series of levels and the adjacent steep slopes have been utilised in the past for many diverse reasons.
Sherborne Abbey, which used to be one of the largest landowners in the vicinity used the sheltered topography and mild microclimate of Beer to cultivate grapes for alcoholic drinks.
