Corrina introduces you to her stunning new book...
I have been walking on Dartmoor for the past twenty years so I'm pretty sure that according to some very old, possibly written in stone law, the moor belongs to me now. Cool!
It's the most beautiful, magical place, overflowing with history that dates back thousands of years, and it's everywhere.
It's got spooky stuff too, like Witches, the Devil, Hell hounds, Pixies and Phantom Pigs - what more could you want? I often drag my friends up onto the moor in the middle of the night on ghost walks - they love it. They do get a little nervous though when they hear me say "I don't think this is the right path." Fortunately no one has been tempted away by the Devil, turned to stone by the Witch or been chased away by a phantom piggy - yet!
These little books, this being the first of a proposed series, are my way of saying thank you to the moor and hopefully showing others some of its beauty. I am not a professional photographer and make no apologies for the rawness of my photos. I go on Dartmoor to walk and enjoy - I am not one for sitting still for hours with camera and tripod trying to capture the perfect light for the perfect picture. Life is too short!
My favourite place for antiquities is up around Drizzlecombe which is found on the South moor. Its got impressive stone rows, a good example of a submerged Kistvaen, a giant cairn and some hut circle remains in a round pound. Lots to investigate and its not too far from Ditsworthy Warreners cottage, another great place to visit...
