The Book of Manaton (pdf e-book)
The Book of Manaton (pdf e-book)
  • Description
  • Related

The parish of Manaton lies at the eastern edge of Dartmoor, where the rugged moorland slopes sweep down to deep river valleys. Few who visit fail to besmitten by the grandeur of the scenery, while those who have made the parish their home appreciate both the place and the sense of community that remains strong here despite the isolated nature of the many farms and homesteads that punctuate the landscape.

The Book of Manaton celebrates this community, looking back over the years to those whose lives have touched our own; to those families and individuals who, through photographs, reminiscences and anecdotes, are here remembered.

Imprint: Halsgrove. ISBN 1841140384, 210x297mm, 208 pages. Published May 1999. pdf e-book February 2011.
