Devon - Dartmoor
Dartmoor is an
area of moorland in south Devon, England. Protected by National Park
status as Dartmoor National Park, it covers 954 square kilometres
(368 sq mi).
The granite which forms the uplands dates from the Carboniferous
Period of geological history.
The moorland is capped
with many exposed granite hilltops known as tors, providing habitats
for Dartmoor wildlife. The highest point is High Willhays, 621 m
(2,037 ft) above sea level. The entire area is rich in antiquities
Dartmoor is managed by
the Dartmoor National Park Authority, whose 22 members are drawn
from Devon County Council, local district councils and Government.
Parts of Dartmoor have been used as military firing ranges for over
200 years. The public are granted extensive land access rights on
Dartmoor (including restricted access to the firing ranges) and it
is a popular tourist destination.
