Very different weather down here but that should be obvious ! We are in between the Brendon and Haydon hills to the West and the Quantocks to the East. We also are on the summit of the West Somerset Railway at around 400 feet so we do get a fair amount of cloud - having only been here a month it's difficult to assess normality. Most amusing at lunchtime listening to the Lords Test Match where it was cloudy and windy but bright sunshine here !

One thing that is very, very different is the lack of pollution down here. Dark glasses can be very necessary as it is very bright and the skin burns much more easily than where we came from. Going into the Taunton retail parks which are near the M5 is a pain because of higher humidity and the obvious pollution - bit like that coming from the M3 and the planes at the Abbey.
