About This Image
A view of part of Dartmoor, a designated National Park in Devon, in the west of England.
Dartmoor became a National Park in 1951. It's purpose is to conserve and enhance the natural beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage of the National Park.
Dartmoor has a rich and varied cultural heritage, ranging from the remains of prehistoric chambered tombs, about four and a half thousand years old, through buildings and settlements of medieval and later origin, to its customs and traditions, some, such as the famous Widecombe Fair, still thriving. All combine to give Dartmoor a distinctive character, showing how people and landscape have influenced each other over thousands of years.
Thanks for looking. :)
