To The Blue Ball Inn.

final

Back to using my Bideford Black pigment on Bockingford paper 700 x 340mm.  This time is a picture inspired from a circular walk from Watersmeet to the Blue Ball Inn at the top of Countisbury Hill.  Then onto Lynmouth and back up to where we started our walk.
The Blue Ball Inn was so called because in the late 18th century it was used as a coaching stop.  A blue ball used to be raised on a pole to notify the coachmen that someone was in need of passage.  It has a history of haunting and highwaymen!
