Dartmoor Stone Walls

Dartmoor has hundreds of miles of dry stone walls snaking over the moor. The walls are all built with local stone from the area.

The walls enclosed the lands of the farmers on the moor and were mainly built from the 17th-19th centuries.

For more information on Dartmoor walls, legendarydartmoor.co.uk has lots of interesting information including the work of master wall builder, John Bishop.
