End of Year Seasonal Round-Up

Dartmoor Ponies


As we near the end of 2018 we can reflect on a very successful landmark 20th Anniversary year packed full of interesting and informative events and activities.

With our Chairman Dr Tom Greeves at the helm we have had numerous highlights including an absorbing visit to Okehampton Camp.

We also highlighted an enlightening analysis of the present condition of the High Moor on our Gidleigh Commoners day.

Some very large audiences thoroughly enjoyed our unique nine day Music Festival and in October we conducted our Annual Debate entitled “Are we using Dartmoor’s Stone Resources Wisely?”

We also enjoyed a fascinating presentation by Adrian Colston for our Annual Research Lecture entitled “Why we disagree about Moorland Management and Grazing Regimes – The different narratives of the Dartmoor Commons.”

We are all beginning to think about winding down now and enjoying some socialising and hopefully some Seasonal merriment as well as some quiet contemplation I am sure; and on this note The Dartmoor Society would like to wish all our Members and everyone visiting our website a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year we are looking forward to seeing you all and enjoying your company in 2019.
