Dartmoor England 2004

These #photographs are from Dartmoor England on the 27th of April 2004 and include images of the famous Clapper Bridge at Postbridge. 

Dartmoor is an easy day trip from Exeter and a good place to have lunch is the East Dart Hotel at Postbridge where you can see the famous Clapper Bridge, a bridge they tell us comes from our "primitive" past, so it could easily be another 19th Century invention!

These photograph galleries contain images of the rugged landscape and it's inhabitants including the horses and sheep that seem to graze uninhibited by fences, so make sure you watch the road so you don't run over them.

There's photographs of the infamous Dartmoor Prison and we've included James' images of the Renault Megane Hire Car, that look like, but are not, advertisements, because the car was one of the best hire cars we've had anywhere in the world.

The Gallery, Above, contains a selection of colour edited images and below are the curated camera proofs for narrative context.

"Experience The Moor

Dartmoor is a rugged and captivating region in the Southwest of England, offering a remarkably diverse and utterly magical outdoor experience. Covering 954 square kilometres, this ancient landscape is characterized by rolling hills, vast granite tors, gorgeous green valleys, and pristine rivers.

The sensation of freedom, as you traverse wide expanses of heather and gorse clad terrain, is unparalleled. The moors are punctuated by iconic granite tors, such as Haytor and Hound Tor, providing not only breath-taking panoramic views but also a glimpse into Dartmoor’s geological history.

Dartmoor’s rivers, including the Teign, Dart, Okement and Tavy, offer opportunities for wild swimming, and picnicking along their banks. In contrast, the steep-sided valleys and open areas on the moor are a haven for wildlife enthusiasts, with semi-wild ponies, shaggy highland cattle, lots of sheep and elusive birds like skylarks and the cuckoo.

The moor is steeped in history, evident through its prehistoric stone rows, bronze age settlements, clapper bridges, and not forgetting the eerie buildings and shadows of Dartmoor’s infamous prison!

Dartmoor’s dark skies offer exceptional stargazing opportunities. On a clear night, the absence of light pollution allows for a mesmerizing celestial display, plus of course the legendary sunsets and sunrises are a huge draw for photographers.

Dartmoor is a place where the elements, history, and nature converge to create an unforgettable experience. Whether you seek solitude and introspection or adventure and exploration, Dartmoor offers a myriad of possibilities that will leave you with lasting memories of this captivating wilderness".
