Playing in the Stream

Children playing in the river Avill at Gallox Bridge, Dunster. This late medieval stone bridge – originally ‘gallows bridge’ – across the River Avill once carried packhorses bringing fleeces from Exmoor to the Somerset market town of Dunster. The town had become a centre of the wool trade by the 13th century, when it was the main source of England’s wealth.
