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. :)

echoing all the other comments, Jas. Think I've never been to Dartmoor, altho' have been to Devon. But have been to the Yorkshire Moors with Auntie, Uncle and Margaret, years ago.

Hi Anne, Yes, this was a great day to visit Dartmoor; the sun was shining and the temperature was warm; a perfect day and a wonderful scene to view. Thanks for taking the time to look and comment. :)

What a lovely scene. So full of life and color that I feel as if I am standing right there, drinking in all the good fresh air and the loveliness of the dark blue beauty of the water. A great picture to just look at and go deeper and deeper into the wonderful scene. More, please!!!

Thanks for commenting Beverly. :) Yes, it's lovely to walk all across the moors but only in good weather; it can sometimes be quite treacherous and people have had to be rescued when the mist has come down unexpectedly! :(

Thanks Lorraine, Golda, Carol, Vickie and Chriss for looking in and leaving such nice comments too! Yes, I have to admit, we do have some very nice scenery in England. Considering we are a very small island in comparison to places like New Zealand and the United States, we still have an awful lot of 'green' areas. :)
