Thanks for linking to us re. Dartmoor Cream Tea Challenge, and nice website. I hope this helps as your site is obviously trying to be as accurate as possible.
I have looked it up but there is a lack of detail on it- one piece of info however says it is Iron Age! Also, apparently, Leigh Tor, just up the hill is noted as a Causewayed Enclosure- could there be a link?

November 26th Hi Tim, Thank you so much for all of your information!
Our presentation was a success! As I was focusing more on the landscape and the Victorians fear of degeneration, I was able to do some analysis of the Hound and your information was very helpful to do that!
I also showed one of the images you sent me to the class, on the PowerPoint and explained a bit about your site! I am currently taking a Victorian Literature class that focuses on Gothic elements. My topic in the presentation, specifically, is focusing on the settings of London and the Grimpen Mire as Gothic.?
I was just wondering if there is anyway I could use what you say I would cite, of course in my presentation, and what your sources have been?
Is there a correlation between the two? Do you know of any folk books or sources I could use to find information? If you have any time at all, to look into these things or get back to me, it would be much appreciated!
Thanks for your time! Also I would be very interested to know if you have published any other books on Dartmoor. I look forward to hearing from you. You can purchase the book which is published by Barramoor Books, to order a copy call October 29th Hi, I read your article with great interest and it would seem that I need to go to the Holy Trinity Church as soon as I can.
William Ponsford and I would most grateful if you could please send me copies of any pictures that you might that show anything to do with Rev. Any help would be most welcome, as I seem to have come to a bit of a stop with my family tree!
Do you have a higher resolution of the Virtuous lady mine Post card you have on your website? If you do, would it be possible for you to put it on the website so I could get a good look.

Charles Hendry, former energy secretary, published his long awaited report on the Swansea Bay tidal lagoon power station last week coming down in favour of the project. Hendry’s report is comprehensive but has one key omission.
It does not ask if tidal lagoons can provide renewable base-load power in the UK as is often claimed. Visit our website regularly for admissions guidelines, pupil resources, latest news stories, upcoming events and important notices.
