Not quite finished yet … to be published next year by Square Peg.
Just wondering if there was a clear indication of what changed to make the likes of Grimspound less of s desirable residence. Rackham says minerals leached from thin soil … but I have also read that the climate became more hostile, which would suggest that it was milder back then in the Bronze Age.. Many thanks again Best Wishes — Hugh Warwick. Excellent cheers for the reply, Would the mill only have processed corn, or wheat as well?
Any record of when it was built? May 30th Hi Tim, I was walking to Fingle Bridge today on the south bank and noticed a large stone structure that looked like a blowing house, located meters down from the bridge. There were two good size iron wheels that would have possibly been used to power the bellows.
It was between 10 — 15 meters from the river. The structure was not listed on my map, as most blowing houses are. Have you heard anything about a blowing house in that area? Here are two pictures from today of the wall, and iron wheels.

I am curious, do you have anything to add? Regards, Greg Thanks for your email, what you came across are the remains of Fingle Corn Mill, you can follow the old leat channel back up towards the bridge. Hello, Dartmoorlander, I please was curious to ask about the original crosses from the Middle Ages — what was the approximate distance between the crosses which were used as pathway markers?
Also, how far apart were the two Abbeys on the pathway which ran between them? My father was a serving prison officer at Dartmoor and would like any information on him that you may hold. We lived in Princetown in for 2 years as I recall, unfortunately my father died suddenly whilst still serving at Dartmoor in July of … Thanking you. Regards Carol Dunn. I had read the newspaper reports of the case but your account has filled in the details.
You see, I am researching my family history and I am fairly sure that John was my 4x great grandfather. So thanks Tim. I think you have made my day. Blessings, Amanda Scott. We are having a new website made and I was wondering if you would permit me to use some of your text from the Legendary Dartmoor website about Ordulph The Great to add to our page on the history of the Ordulph Arms.
I would of course credit it to you. Kind regards, Kevin Moore May 15th Dear Sir, I have visited your site on Legendary Dartmoor, it is very nice and interesting, I have a question: is your the poetry on page Dartmoor lichens?
The Damson Tree by Roger Whale
In each episode we use an old railway tourist guidebook published in to visit different places by train and learn about their history. The series is very popular and is broadcast in prime slots on the channel BBC2 here in the UK, where they rate very highly with millions of viewers. They are also broadcast worldwide, including in the US.
This year we will be travelling from Birmingham, through the West Country and finishing by the sea in Devon. Along the way we will highlight the engineering achievements of the area, key industries, pioneering companies, notable people and important social and cultural movements. This journey will be split into 5 x 30 minute episodes. I found your website while researching into Victorian fiction set in Dartmoor and thought I would get in touch. Would it be possible to speak to you about Dartmoor in fiction?
As a Devonshire lad I have long been fascinated by Dartmoor and reading your material brings back happy memories of stories told while camping for Ten Tors and letterboxing. Is it associated with the military range or is it part of a more ancient feature? I would love to know more.
Many thanks for putting my pictures on your website over the years. I recently did a major overhaul with a new website of my paintings, so my old website address has now changed to www.
I have added new images of the moor to the site so if you need anything for your website in the future feel free to use anything you require. Hi Tim, Just wanted to send a quick note of thanks for the Legendary Dartmoor website.etotaseb.tk
20 great pub walks, chosen by nature writers
Best wishes, Chris. Could we possibly have a chat about it, as I thought it could make a fun piece for the BBC, who would have thought that skunks were bred on Dartmoor in the s! If you could give me a ring on my mobile number below that would be great. I would be most interested if you could point me in the direction of any internet or other sources for anything you might have published on this, or if you can give further details yourself:. I am also very much interested in checking the alignment of the stones.
Do you have a figure for this? Anyway, I have seen the ghost of a lady there a few times, as has my barmaid Katrina and daughter Charlotte. Footsteps have also been heard. I was inspired to write this poem during October , following a walk on the moor with my father and a drive home past Bellever and Princetown.
The ballad tells the apocryphal tale of a prisoner who escapes Dartmoor Prison and attempts to seek refuge in the rocks atop the tor…. I appreciate that the style of the poem in particular the knowingly-contrived wordplay! I was just looking through and you have saved me a massive amount of time and effort trying to locate all the legends around Dartmoor … I wondered if you had any further reading to recommend,. I teach film and photography at The Small School in Hartland and some of my students want an isolated, moorland telephone box for a short film they are making.
Ideally it should be one of the old red boxes and must not be near any houses. Any ideas? I look forward to hearing from you, Paul. From what I can recall they are both the old style. Hope this is of some help. Hi, I wonder if you can help?
If you know of anyone, grateful for a contact. Hello, My name is Oliver and I am currently conducting research for a screenplay I am writing set on Dartmoor, concerning two escaped convicts from Princetown prison in If yes, thanks in advance. My question is thus: how exactly would a manhunt have been conducted on the moors at the time? Any help you could offer would be most appreciated. Hi hope this finds you well? Sadly I have to report although I am sure my good friend Ian Pitchford may already have done so, but we visited the Northmore Cross late yesterday to find that some words fail me here idiot has broken off the cross and removed it.
Is there anything that can be done? Do we need to inform anybody else?
Thanks for your email, various folk have reported that the small cross had disappeared much to their annoyance. I suppose it would be possible to make a replica as there are enough photographs of the cross in existence. I am sure the DNPA are aware of the situation. First of all congratulations on your excellent site on Dartmoor — I have been reading it for a number of years and the footnotes of my own research often refers to Legendary Dartmoor.
Can you please tell me when this will be available. So as you can imagine I would be fascinated to look at your list and pull out the names concerning water.
