    Less than a mile from the church, within the parish bounds of the famous Dartmoor village of Widecombe-in-the-Moor, lies the tiny hamlet of Bonehill. This account of its history investigates field boundaries, ancient granite longhouses and extensive unpublished documents to reveal a story that sheds light on the evolution of many similar remote settlements on Dartmoor over the last 1000 years. The book is illustrated with archive maps, prints and contemporary photographs.
