Dartmoor Explorations Gazetteer Letter “D”

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. This post of Letter “D’s” will be added to as more photographs are collated.

    Hi Steve – enjoying working through my backlog of your posts. I thought for a moment you had a Devonport Leat aqueduct I didn’t know about but the picture looks like the well-known one up towards Black Tor at SX 5732 7137. Isn’t your grid ref the road bridge down at Meavy? Keep up the good work! – Nigel

      Hi Nigel,

      Thanks for picking up the error. I used the NGR from Mike Brown’s Gazetteer which had SX5384 6719, which in actual fact is Lower Meavy Bridge. I will check my references in future!
      Kind Regards, Steve
