Field between Shell's Farm and Kelly's Farm, Shepton Beauchamp
On the high ground to the north of the village this large, open field is down to a cover crop of turnips.
This is a useful, quick germinating, crop helping to prevent soil compaction that can occur in the sandy silt-like loam soil in this area. The plants break up the soil while they are in the ground, like a natural plough. Turnips are an excellent cover crop for farmers who graze livestock on their fields after the main cereal harvest.

The lower lying land in the far distance is West Moor and the River Isle valley. Beyond the hills on the far horizon are the Somerset Levels.
