AN ARTIST has hand-painted three vans with scenes from across Somerset to highlight the wide range of places cared for by the National Trust.

The vans have been painted by Rob Trinick, of Nailsea, who has recently finished a graphic design degree at Loughborough University.

The scenes include Brean Down, Cheddar Gorge, Horner Woods in Exmoor and Glastonbury Tor, and each took him three days to paint.

Rob said: “We are very lucky to have such rich, diverse and well-preserved countryside in the South West, and the opportunity to visit numerous historic and architectural landmarks.

“I hope the vans encourage people to explore more of Somerset, and reconsider the natural beauty that exists locally.”
