I've learned so much about Dartmoor from this website.
Thank you from North Devon! Great find out about Old Crockern, who is being invoked by Right to Roam over the exclusion of public access to camp on the Moor. Brilliant website
Hi Tim, I have just passed a very interesting hour reading some of the tales on your website. Thank you for your excellent website. I am trying to find the location of a walk I did maybe 15 years ago on the moor. I was new to the area and hadn't got my bearings. I recall passing an old Dartmoor cottage which had an outbuilding with a very small window. My guidebook mentioned that this cottage had been the former home of a woman who lived alone,. Except she had a son, who she kept locked in the outbuilding, and who was known to scream and roar through his small window at anyone who passed by the outbuilding. Have you heard of this story and are you able to help me with a location please? Thanks in anticipation.
Hi Legendry Dartmoor we think your Grid reference for Holming Bean / Omen Beam might be worth checking. great site
I live in Buckfastleigh and i find your stories very interesting thank you i will continue to read them all.
Thank you. You provide the most detailed and enjoyable historical notes. I really enjoy the variety and depth of your Dartmoor coverage, especially in the past few months of lockdown.
A fantastic resource!
hi visited Roborough Trig yesterday,plug is missing very sad as it was in a photo in Dec 2016, having completed ALL the Trigs in cornwall last year its now Devon,
Hi Tim. What a great site. just an aside on the dartmoor characters. Would Sammy Harris be a suitable inclusion? Not sure if you know of him but he had a scrap yard at Lettaford up until 1970,s or 80,s. There is a book written by his daughter Peggy, who was brought up on the yard and is worth a read. Peggy could not read or write. She attended an evening class in Exeter and pupils were encouraged to write about their past. Peggy's was so extraordinary that it was published in 2009. I lived in South Tawton in the late sixties-early seventies and remember Sammy from trips to his yard looking for car spares. He also used to frequent the Kings Arms in South Zeal with his pal, Mark Small, a gypsy from Whiddon Down. The Kings Arms was Mark's office and he would frequently get called on the public phone there. Life on a Dartmoor Scrapyard. Peggy Harris. Edgemoor Publishing. I have seen it for sale in The Dartmoor information shops.
What a Fantastic Place to Visit.Will stay A lot Longer and explore more. Need more Puff though..hehe.
Not visited for a while so bit shocked to see the new site (in a good way). Not had time to explore fully yet but looks great and a excellent source of information in the past. Just signed up to your mailing list
