A – Z of Locations: D is for Dartmoor

During this year I shall be posting photographs from places around the UK, many of which have not been published before. Where I have previously blogged about a location I will provide a link to the post, though you won’t be able to comment on it as I restrict comments to six months.

D is for Dartmoor

Dartmoor National Park is a vast moorland in the county of Devon, in southwest England. Dartmoor ponies roam its craggy landscape, defined by forests, rivers, wetlands and tors (rock formations).

Wonderful views from Pork Hill car park

We had an incredible day driving around Dartmoor National Park back in June 2022, stopping in various places to have a short stroll to admire the views.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. Wonderful photos, Jude. We know one of the rangers on the Dartmoor and only saw a small section of it. Lovely and one of the positives of having a decent rainfall is all that lush green grass.

    1. We took the opportunity of good weather to drive around the whole area of Dartmoor, avoiding the narrow roads through the centre. It is a dramatic landscape.
