Dartmoor is a place where people go to walk, to climb tors, to experience unspoilt wilderness; but in fact the landscape has been shaped by human activities, from its standing stones and clapper bridges to prison buildings and disused railway lines. In this study of the area, Matthew Kelly considers the many different responses to Dartmoor - archaeological, poetic, folkloric, commercial, environmentalist - and explores how 'this unusually distinct landscape has been encountered, imagined and argued over since the late 18th century'.
