The Ancient Job Of An Exmoor Lengthsman

When Shaun Bryant was growing up in Kent he had never heard of a lengthsman. Most people are unaware of this occupation, but many Exmoor visitors and locals benefit from the work.

Shaun is a maintenance and repairman for a number of parishes on the Somerset side of the moor. He talks with Keri Jones about his role, which can be traced back to medieval times.
