My grandchildren were absolutely fascinated by Grimspound. It is so remote, only one house visible in the distance. You cannot imagine people living in such a harsh environment. If travelling on Dartmoor it is well worth a visit. I went there many years ago, and...More
I stumbled upon Grimspound when Googling walks and when I read it was a Bronze Age settlement of hut circles, the inner geek in me knew I had to find it. You can drive there and park at the bottom of the slope, follow the...More
