Dartmoor: A Fair Deal for the Hills - a film by Chris Chapman and Kate King

Posted in Films on Tuesday 26th January 2021 at 8:41pm

In recognition of the efforts of many people to maintain a healthy balance of habitats and farming interests on the Dartmoor Commons, it seems a good time to remind ourselves of a film made by Chris Chapman and Kate King in 2008, Dartmoor: A Fair Deal for the Hills. This can be watched below, or on YouTube.

Chris Chapman is on our Executive Committee. Layland Branfield, who farms near Two Bridges, is one of the contributors and is another member of our Executive.

As part of the Dartmoor Society’s ongoing exploration and discussion about Dartmoor vegetation, the Spring 2021 newsletter includes a feature on the work undertaken on Throwleigh Common in 2020/21. A collaborative project involving conservation volunteers from Sticklepath and Okehampton StOC group, Andy Crabb DNPA Archaeologist and others.

For background information see the documents below, also available from our Achievements page.
