– About the Book –

Dartmoor Tors Compendium combines outstanding photography and detailed factual information for every tor on Dartmoor (as named by Ordnance Survey and on freely accessible land).  Using an alphabetical order and reference map, each of the 155 tors is depicted over a double spread with photographs, a fact-file and well-researched text.

 

Many books have been written about Dartmoor.  This book is different.  It brings together the features and history around each tor and presents them as a compendium of information, illustrated with inspiring photography to provide an engaging experience.  In short, Dartmoor Tors Compendium allows the reader to explore all the Dartmoor tors in one sumptuous book.

 

For every book sold, £2 goes straight to Donate for Dartmoor; raising funds to help the Dartmoor National Park Authority conserve precious habitats, protect historical sites and improve recreational access.
