A set of three books to help you explore the variety of landscapes that can be found throughout Dartmoor National Park.
This set is a must for anyone interested in the history and origin
of Dartmoor's landscapes.
'Dartmoor's Alluring Uplands' looks at the history of how the landscapes of Dartmoor have been shaped by agriculture over the last several thousand years. In particular the seasonal migrations of grazing animals, and their owners, from the lowlands of Devon in Winter to the higher moorland pastures in Spring and Summer.
'Dartmoor's Earliest Photographs' provides a fascinating record of Dartmoor in the late 1800's when the use of photography first began. Some of the 125 or so images in the book have never been published before. They allow the reader to compare and contract current landscapes and features of Dartmoor to how they were in the late 1800's.
'Dartmoor Through The Year' explores how Dartmoor's landscapes, and in particular its flora and fauna, change throughout the year.
From the depths of Winter where animals struggle to survive on the harsh moorland to the verdant pastures of Summer where life is abundant.
A lovely collection and a super gift.
