Dartmoor Stone Gate

We looked at Dartmoor stone walls earlier and some of these walls have gates and stiles allowing public access.

Some of the stones for the gates have been ingeniously cut to allow the wooden gate to fit smoothly. The wooden gate has long gone but the ancient marks in the stone can still be seen.

The tops of the stone walls are covered in some of the 1700 species of lichen found in the British Isles.
