Projects and project map

The Moor than meets the eye Landscape Partnership have developed a scheme of 28 integrated projects which will show that there is more than meets the eye to Dartmoor and the story of its landscape and people over 4,000 years.

The projects will bring people together to explore Dartmoor’s past, conserve its wildlife, improve understanding of the landscape and share and develop the skills to look after it for generations to come.

In short the projects will, together, help tell the story of Dartmoor; a landscape forged by nature and shaped by humans from prehistoric times to today.
