15 – 17 September
The weekend will combine lectures with field visits to enable a broader understanding of the farming and farm buildings of Dartmoor, in particular the contrast between the Teign valley and the higher moor and its fringe. The recent Dartmoor Historic Farmsteads guidance produced jointly by the Dartmoor National Park Authority and Historic England will be utilised to illustrate a new perspective in the farmsteads character of this upland region. The event meetings will be based in Christow in the Teign valley. Accommodation arrangements are to be self sourced.
