Dartmoor Stone Crosses (pdf e-book)
Dartmoor Stone Crosses (pdf e-book)
  • Description
  • Related

The ancient stone crosses of Dartmoor represent one of the moorland landscape's most enduring features. For centuries these powerful monoliths have stood as enigmatic sentinels upon the moor, their origins often lost in time.

<>Many were set up in the days when the Church held great power, and the influence of the monasteries spread throughout the land. Some mark ancient trackways - but for many there is no explanation of their siting - or any certainty of their date. Such is their mystery.

Dartmoor Stone Crosses helps to unravel the history behind each cross, drawing upon written records, legend and local lore to provide a fascinating account of each of the 132 monuments included.

Imprint: Halsgrove. ISBN 9781855227910, hardback, 245x225mm, 312 pages. pdf e-Book March 2011.
