Bridestowe lies on Dartmoor's north-western edge, an idyllic little-known parish, yet one with a long and fascinating history. Through the ages the village has always been a farming community. Some families have resided on their farms over a great period of time whilst others disappeared long before their homesteads were swallowed up by the events of time. Inhabitants provided for their own self-sufficiency whilst performing an administrative role over the affairs of parish life. 297x210mm, 160 page hardback, and over 200 historic photographs, maps and illustrations.
