Celebrating Dartmoor and the Archangel’s Way at Lydford Church on Sunday 18 June

Sunday 18th June
St Petrock’s Church, Lydford, Okehampton, UK

The Archangel’s Way is a new pilgrimage route that runs for 38 miles across Dartmoor incorporating many distinctive churches along the way from St Michael de Rupe, the 12th century church that stands on the top of Brent Tor to St Michael the Archangel in Chagford.

On Sunday 18 June we will gather at 2pm in St Petroc’s Church, Lydford, one of the churches along the Archangel’s Way, to celebrate the spirituality of Dartmoor through song, music, poetry, and literature.  This event is open to all and you are invited to bring your own poetry and readings to add to the celebration.

If you would like to walk part of the route before our gathering in St Petroc’s Church, you can find more information on the Devon Pilgrim website. For further details please contact Nick Fennemore 01647 433749. Please bring your own refreshments.

A Revelatory Eye – Dartmoor Photography from the 1850s to the 1870s

Thursday 5th October
Ashburton Arts Centre, 15 West St, Ashburton, Newton Abbot TQ13 7DT, UK

In the last 25 years Tom Greeves has been collecting some of the earliest landscape photographs of Dartmoor, taken in the 1860s and 1870s. Many were by one of the finest national photographers of the era, Francis Bedford, but several other photographers captured scenes that are of great historical, social and environmental interest, and often beautifully composed. A Victorian sense of humour is also evident in some of them. This talk will illustrate examples from across Dartmoor.
