"By the lone fountain's secret bed' Where human footsteps rarely tread, 'Mid the wild moor of silent glen, The sundew blooms unseen by men; Spreads there her leaf of rosy bloom, A chalice for the morning dew, And, ere the summers sun can rise, Drinks the pure waters of the skies." To the round-leafed sundew - Anon 1844. Ever been sploshing through a Dartmoor bog and suddenly your foot sinks without warning then as you look down to see the damage a patch of sundews lay at your feet? For me th...

Corndon Down was a very special place for the folk who roamed Dartmoor in the Bronze Age, so much so it could have been regarded as a ritual place where they buried their dead. Why? Probably because of the wide ranging vistas that can be seen from the top of the down thus giving a high visibility within the landscape. It certainly seemed rather 'spiritual' the day we visited as the whole of the down was shrouded in mist which came rolling in opaque waves with the occasional interruption of g...

When on holiday most people like to send postcards of places they have visited to their family and friends, either to show where there are or what they have seen, maybe rather cynically even to brag about where they are. Perhaps in this day and age of instant media such as Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter and a host of other such apps the good old fashioned postcards days are numbered.

"The quarry lies like a gash in the slope of the hills. To the dizzy edges of it creep heather and the bracken; beneath, upon its precipices, a stout rowan or two arise, and everywhere Natures has fought and laboured to hie this wound driven so deep into her mountain-side by man. A cicatrix of moss and fern and many grasses conceal the scars of pick and gunpowder, time has weathered the harsh edges of the riven stone; the depths of the quarry are covered by pools of clear water, for it is a ...

A popular walk around the Princetown area follows the old Great Western Railway Princetown branch track which runs around King's Tor, Swell Tor and Foggin Tor. There are so many features of industrial archaeology to be seen in and around the quarries that the small ruins which lay below the track beneath Swell Tor often get overlooked. So in an effort to redirect attention towards Yestor Farm here is a brief history of the farmstead. Firstly it maybe as well to look at the original landscape...

"They sat in a nook of Great Links Tor, looked at the world outspread beneath them, and listened to the hiss of the wind, as it flogged heath and stone and chattering rushes. A million tiny clouds dappled the sky with pure pearl, and far beneath this apparently motionless cloth of silver was woven another cloud-pattern of darker tone, where tattered vapour fled easterly across heaven before the roaring breeze. This rack sank to earth's surface, swept the Moor, and, when it reached the crowns... Greats, Wind, Breeze, Heaven, Heath, Earth Surface
