AUTHOR: Simon Butler (ed)
Dartmoor Century Vol II (pdf e-book)
Dartmoor Century Vol II (pdf e-book)
  • Description

Dartmoor has been described as a timeless landscape and yet it has never been so much at risk from change. This second volume, published in association with the Dartmoor Trust, provides an opportunity to look back over the past hundred years or so, to reflect on the changes both time and man has wrought upon this precious landscape and to consider how best to preserve it for the future.

The royalties from the original Dartmoor Century book paid for the digital archiving of the Taylor Collection from which the photographs for this volume are drawn. Three generations of the Taylor family produced many thousands of photographs of Dartmoor. Dartmoor Century II is edited by Simon Butler with a foreword by Lady Elizabeth Kitson.

By including pictures taken at the same location, over a hundred years after the original photograph was taken, it is possible to see how much, or how little, the moorland landscape, its archaeological sites and buildings have changed. All these images help to open our eyes to the events that have taken place on Dartmoor over a century, and remind us of the importance of collecting and preserving photographs for this generation and future generations to enjoy.

This book also helps to promote awareness of The Dartmoor Trust's Dartmoor Archive project.
