Dartmoor Farm
Dartmoor Farm
  • Description
The aim of this book is to provide the general reader, and those with a particular interest in Dartmoor, with an overview of farms and farming on the moor. It covers the period from earliest written records up to the final disappearance of horse power around the years of the Second World War. Emphasis is given to the late-Victorian period and into the early decades of the twentieth century. The authorís text draws on personal reminiscences and memories from local people, but principally on a fascinating set of diaries kept by the Hannaford family of Southcombe, Widecombe-in-the-Moor, in the years from 1896Ė1968. These provide a unique record of life on a typical Dartmoor family farm over a continuous period. The text is illustrated throughout by photographs taken from the authorís collection and personal albums. The bulk, however, come from a remarkable single source belonging to the Hunt family who have farmed in Lustleigh and Manaton parishes for more than a hundred years and whose forebear, C.A. Hunt, was one of the earliest photographers of farming life on Dartmoor. (210x232mm, hardback, 312 pages, ISBN 1855227916).
