Great PaulVDV 2021-11-24 11:49

Hello Jean,
A splendid landscape picture in which the blue reservoir immediately demands attention.
Also the church and its tower catch my eye.
Nice variety of meadows and forests.
I think I can find 'sheep' and 'tower' in the name of the village. But perhaps the name refers to something completely different.
Best regards, Paul

Default To PaulVDV: Sheepstor

Hi Paul, the Sheepstor, comes from the sheep and the tor.
A tor is a dramatic outcrop of granite, usually standing on top of a hill.
Each tor has its own unique and distinct formation.

The small village/hamlet is situated beneath such a tor.
Thanks as always for your continued support.

Kind regards, Jean.

Thank you Jean,


Now that I read your answer I seem to remember somewhere that you once explained the meaning of 'tor' but I had forgotten ...

Maybe I was distracted by the beautiful tower of the church ...

Best regards,
Paul
