Dartmoor National Park
Dartmoor’s moorland is a wide open landscape with unbroken skylines and ridges. Tors emerge from the landform providing focal points across the landscape. The high moorland is overlain with thick deposits of peat and form internationally important blanket bogs; these bogs are surrounded by large expanses of heathland and grass moorland. The moorland, whilst appearing wild and unmanaged, is looked after by commoners who graze cattle, sheep and ponies, maintaining its distinctive character.
