The River Dart
The River Dart
  • Description

The Dart estuary provides the final eleven miles of one of Britain’s best known rivers. Taking its name from the moorland from which it rises, the river is a highway of water along which history has passed. All who know the area will appreciate its scenic qualities and the object of this book is to provide the reader with an opportunity to get to know and enjoy its fascinating history and superb landscape, set within some of the most breathtaking scenery in Britain.

Each of thirteen chapters takes the reader on a guided walk through town and village, and in and around the hidden byways that follow the course of the River Dart. The author, who has lived and worked in the region for most of his life, provides a personal commentary to the places and features that are passed along the way, while a selection of colour photographs bring alive the area’s natural beauty, setting it in an historical context and enticing the reader to explore further.

All those who live in the area, or those who intend to visit, will simply love this book.

The successful Halsgrove Discover Series aims to provide the leisure walker with an added sense of adventure and discovery. This book takes the reader upon a fascinating journey deep into the Devon countryside to seek out some of its most interesting secrets.

John Risdon is Devon born and bred and shares his lineage with one of the county’s greatest historical recorders. Trained as a teacher and geographer he brings these skills into his writing in The River Dart, and his deep passion for the rich heritage and history of this county is evident on every page. Combined with his interest in photography he attempts to bring any location alive to his readers – be it a castle or a village.

A father of two children, now grown, John lives with his wife Jenny in a village close to the Dart estuary, combining his professional interest in the region with a love of messing about in boats.
