from Dartmoor, Devon
The magical and rugged landscape of Dartmoor. This part of Dartmoor
is close to Postbridge and the environment and landscape was a great
inspiration for my short story “The Castle in the Mist”
from “Corsets and Cravings”, where Nora walks from Twobridges
to Postbridge and gets lost on her way...
Typical Dartmoor picture, with rugged nature and large blocks of
rocks called “Tors”.
I imagine that Piper lives just around those hills, however the
exact location is unknown…
Wild Dartmoor ponies.
This is one of the many wild flowers which you may find on the dryer
parts of the moor.
Summer picture of the river Dart crosses the landscape, which runs
through Postbridge. In the area there are several old tinner huts
and other archaeological sites.
Close-up on some lichen. All rocks are covered with the most fascinating
types of moss and lichens.
Tranquil and beautiful water picture.
Sheep wanders wild here as well.
I am not the only author who has borrowed the mystery of Dartmoor
and incorporated it into their novels. In fact, Sir Arthur Conan
Doyle’s novel “Baskerville’s Hound” was
also inspired by Dartmoor.
