Over the course of the scheme we will be producing reports, trails and leaflets to help you find out more about Dartmoor. This is where we will store them.

Here you can download resources to help you discover more about the Dartmoor story-its people and landscape over 4,000 years. There will be archaeological reports, guided trails, activities for all the family and information about the scheme itself. We will be continually adding to this resource so keep checking to see what we have added.

Landscape Conservation Action Plan

This Landscape Conservation Action Plan (LCAP) has been produced by Dartmoor National Park Authority (DNPA) for the Moor than meets the eye Landscape Partnership. The Round 1 application to the Heritage Lottery Fund was prepared by Alison Kohler (DNPA Director of Conservation and Communities) who has continued to oversee the development of the Landscape Partnership Scheme.

Archeaology of Fernworthy Forest Report

As part of the development work, we commisioned Dr Phil Newman to survey the field archaeology of Fernworthy Forest and produce a report to help guide future project work.

Bellever and Postbridge Landscape and Access Plan

We commissioned Stephen Lees to write this plan based on local views and aspirations for the Postbridge area. It forms the basis for the Postbridge and Bellever Trails project.

Audience development plan

Resources for Change were commissioned to produce this report as part of the development of the Landscape Conservation Action Plan. The aim of the plan was to assess the potential to enrich the experience of Dartmoor’s audiences, as well as to consider how audience development can contribute to reducing pressure and multi-user conflicts at honeypot sites. Also, there is interest in how audience development can meld with contemporary interpretation approaches, whilst not taking away from valued but more traditional approaches.

Interpretation Plan

This strategy is intended to inform a ‘joined up’ approach to interpretation planning during the development and delivery phases of the Moor than meets the eye (MTMTE) Landscape Partnership project. However, it has wider relevance and applicability across the whole Dartmoor area.
It is intended as a reference point for individuals, businesses, community groups and organisations interested in engaging the public with Dartmoor’s diverse natural and cultural heritage and history.

Dartmoor Story Branding Guidelines

These guidelines are aimed at those projects producing interpretive material as part of the scheme and have been developed from the interpretation plan.

Moor than meets the eye Skill Audit for Dartmoor

During the development of the scheme a Skills Audit was commissioned to help plan training provision as part of the Moor than meets the eye scheme.
