Dunster Yarn Market
Lying between the wooded hills of Exmoor and the sea, Dunster is one of the most attractive villages in Somerset. In the 12th century it sat on the coast, and thrived as the main trading port for Exmoor. However, when the sea retreated, leaving Dunster two miles inland, it continued to prosper as a centre of the wool trade, and it is from this era that Dunster’s striking Yarn Market dates.
This is my interpretation of this iconic and legendary structure of the Yarn Market. Looking down the high street, onto the hill, we see Dunster Castle.
