A collection of walks, discoveries, insights and pictures of exploring Dartmoor National Park

Dartmoor Explorations Gazetteer : Letter “A”

 A Gazetteer is described as “a geographical dictionary or directory used in conjunction with a map or atlas”. Mike Brown published an extensive Gazetteer of Dartmoor Names in 1993 and this provided the inspiration for the creation of this “Dartmoor Explorations Gazetteer”. The author has thousands of photographs taken throughout the National Park and the creation of this (photographic) Gazetteer seemed the perfect repository for some of them.
