BOSSINGTON to SELWORTHY GREEN
Selworthy Green was part of the Holnicote Estate until the National Trust took it over in 1944. I imagine the village was a collection of cottages for estate workers.
The ford at Allerforford is a very popular photo spot, you see pictures of it frequently around Exmoor. There is a small museum in the village and the most charming part of it is an old style school house, complete with furniture and equipment. If you have children with you treat them to a taste of the "good old days! "
The climb up to Bossington Hill is very steep but I promise you it is worthwhile.
