Quantock Hills National Landscape Team
Quantock Views is a volunteer led project which was the brilliant idea of Keith Edwards a long standing volunteer who recognised the important value of historic photographs and postcards. The landscape of the Quantock Hills has been recognised for its scenic beauty since the time of Coleridge and Wordsworth and in the late 19th century the advent of photography opened up the opportunity for capturing the wonderful views and communities of the Quantock Hills. The project aims to collect high resolution scans of photographs, postcards and images of and from the Quantock Hills to ensure that these historic records are not lost. As well as collating these images the project has a website allowing anyone to view them opening up the heritage of the Quantock Hills to a wider community.
