Horrabridge is a picturesque ancient village on the western edge of Dartmoor National Park. It is situated in the Walkham Valley on the banks of the River Walkham: a fishing river famous for its salmon. The village’s name may have been taken from the 15th century pack-horse bridge which is the only vehicular route from one side of the village to the other, and featured in the children’s television programme Bagpuss. There are moorland walks from all sides of this lovely village.
The gallery, workshop and studio is situated in an old stone building in the centre of the village just meters from the River Walkham.
