Well...not quite. But in the last couple of days I've seen a couple of vids that show the inspiration for Walker pretty darn well. Can landscape be a muse? Oh I think so.
The first is a music vid made by a local film-maker, Conor Purcell. His vid shows the many moods of the moor beautifully - and stars some deeply cute Exmoor ponies. Mind you, I don't envy Guy his dip in the sea - not at this time of year!
The second is from Mike and the Mechanics which was flagged up to me on Twitter. I love the sweeping shots on this, showing the coastland around the edge of the moor and, in particular, the tiny church at Culbone - which appears in the book as Kitnor, home of the Kashebah.
Take a look. Better still, come visit!
