Standing Stone, Giants Basin, Dartmoor National Park by 

There is a prehistoric stone row and burial mounds in the Giant’s Basin close to the Plym river on Dartmoor. I love walking here past Ditsworthy Warren Farm. The Giant’s Basin is an awe inspiring and desolate place that’s just so peaceful to sit and think and soak up the atmosphere. The stones are wonderful in all weathers creating a mood all of their own.

    I have long been fascinated by these ancient standing granite pillars on Dartmoor and the historic folklore connecting with them, gorgeous light and I very much like how you composed the stone and it’s shadow into the rugged moorland scene,
    Regards, Rod.

  • Thanks Rod, It truly is a fascinating place. You’ll have more chance to visit it than I do now, so I’d love to see what you come up with. Just follow the Edward’s Path around Gutter Tor and head towards Ditsworthy Warren Farm, then Giants Basin is only about half a mile away. You’ll love it there! Don.

    I love history of all sorts. When I was much younger, I worked for the Ministry of Works – Repair and Maintenance of Ancient Monuments (now called Historic Scotland). We were based in Linlithgow Palace and we travelled all over Centarl Scotland to the various Castles and Historical Buildings and sites. It was a really interesting job, money was crap, but you can’t have everything …

  • Hi Tom, like you say, we can’t have everything, but what a wonderful opportunity and privillege to visit these places. I’ll bet you even saw the bits that tourists never do? Thanks for that, Don.
