Dividing two high, boggy plateaux in some of the largest and wildest open space in southern England, is the river Dart. Many contrasting scenes, from the stark and beautiful moors, the huge stone Tors and the Dartmoor ponies, to the soft river valleys with their ancient clapper bridges. Walking is the most popular activity in Dartmoor, famous for its prehistoric remains, with routes along the high moor and the wooded valleys. The surrounding villages of North Bovey, Drewsteignton, Lustleigh and Throwleigh display a wealth of ancient and medieval cottages and farmhouses, whilst Ashburton and Moretonhampstead have a row of 17th century almshouses.
