One from the archives….came across this spiders web hung heavy with dew on one of our hikes last year
My emotions are always ‘piqued’ when I come across skys like this when out on Dartmoor….I love the place
A collection of very ancient keepsakes at the entrance to a property.
Perhaps not as rural as some of the American images we’ve seen here, but there is much less space here in the UK 😀 . The reason I took this image originally was the contrast in colour between the purple-blue of the bluebells and the rusted tin roof of the old barn.
Here are two bridges crossing the river at Postbridge on Dartmoor; one much more ancient than the other. This is one of the best preserved ‘Clapper Bridges’ on Dartmoor.
A set of stocks in a Dartmoor village….what could be more old fashioned than these restraints
This is an image of St Peters Church in Buckland in the Moor on Dartmoor. One interesting fact about this church is the clockface which you will have to zoom in on to see the detail. Instead of numbers to indicate the time it has the characters ‘MY DEAR MOTHER’ printed on it. So when I took this image it was ‘R past M’. The story goes that in 1931 William Whitley commissioned the clock face to act as a memorial to his mother who died shortly before.
