Welcome to the Moor than meets the eye blog

We’ve set this website up to help share information about the development of the Moor than meets the eye Landscape partnership which is seeking £2 million pounds of Heritage Lottery funding to match fund a scheme of projects to benefit Dartmoor. It will help conserve this important landscape, and help people get more involved in taking care of it.

You can find out more about the proposed projects by clicking on the “Project descriptions” tab. You can even add your comments to let us know what you think of each project.

This website is a work in progress so keep visiting it to find out more about the scheme as we add more information.

    I agree with Reg that fingerposts should be provided along the route of the path, to direct users to places of interest in the immediate area, however in some cases a bit more than just a fingerpost may be required.
    For instance, in Mill Marsh Park in Bovey Tracey, which the cycle path crosses, a fingerpost directing people to St. John’s Lane and the Old Bovey Station Heritage Centre would be very useful.
    But the problem is that there is no hard surfaced path to St. John’s lane from the park, at the moment there is just a grassed area to cross, in dry conditions this is easy to cross on foot, but in wet conditions the surface starts to revert to a marsh and as a wheelchair user I and other disabled people would find that it makes the park impassable when wet, lack of a firm path would make access more difficult.
