I stumbled upon Grimspound when Googling walks and when I read it was a Bronze Age settlement of hut circles, the inner geek in me knew I had to find it. You can drive there and park at the bottom of the slope, follow the...More

It would be better on a nice day and you could walk around dartmoor. The site is impressive. Signs would have been nice to explain the site to visitors. Still impressive. Parking is very limited 3 or 4 cars only.

These are the ruins from the Bronze age 2000 BC. They are in relatively good shape and there is a splendid Tor next to it. By the way this was the setting for Sherlock Holmes story Hounds of the Baskerville. Plenty of sheep and cattle...More

This site can be found if you turn left off the B3212 after Lettaford when travelling towards Postbridge on Dartmoor. The next village marked on the map is Widdecombe in the moor. .....It is not Plymouth as someone has mapped it earlier. It is an...More

This is the site of a Bronze Age settlement on a hillside in Dartmoor National Park. Not too easy to find (on an unnamed road off of the B3212) but when you get near you should be able to see the remains of the circular...More
