Rev. H Hugh Breton, MA (1873-1936)
A tribute to Rev. H Hugh Breton, MA (1873-1936). He wrote a three part work about Dartmoor, which is brought together in a facsimile called “Beautiful Dartmoor”. Reading part 1, called “Sheepstor and its border lands”, I was particularly taken and slightly amused by Chapter 3, called “Cautions to Dartmoor Visitors”, which he states are: Bogs, Fogs, Escaped Convicts, Scotch Cattle, Vipers and Weather Vagaries”. This post is a tongue in cheek look at these 6 “cautions”.
Here is the first caution in a YouTube video relating to BOGS. The video shows Santa and a feather bed on Hameldown. Rev. Breton describes this as a Green Bog.
