Dartmoor
Dartmoors bleak, yet dramatic landscape covers about 370 square miles where walkers can roam without restrictions.. The exposed granite hilltops are known as tors and the higest of these - High Willhays is 621m above sea level. Although conditions can be hard, Dartmoor does provide a diverse habitat for wildlife with its grassy moorland, bogs, farmland and wooded valleys. Dartmoor ponies are frequenntly seen but there are many rare birds to be found with a pair of binoculars and a little bit of patience!

In prehistoric times the climate was warmer than it is today and much of the moorland was covered with trees. The prehistoric settlers began clearing the forest to form the first farming communities. Remains of their homes, their monuments and there flint tools can still be found in abundance. There are about 5000 huts circles on the moors and these are the remnants of the Bronze Age houses.

The moors can an eerie place even in the summer and abound with tales of myth and legend. It is apparently the home of pixies, headless horsemen and a mysterious pack of goastly hounds. There are even a few more recent stories Hairy Hands forcing a vehicle off the road!

Dartmoor is the birthplace of the popular outdoor hobby of letterboxing, which has become increasingly popular in recent years. Watertight containers known as 'letterboxes' are hidden throughout the moors. Each onecontaining a visitor's book and a rubber stamp. The original intention was for walkers to leave a letter or postcard to be collected and posted by the next person to visit the site.
