In the 1990s I was lucky enough to live in Devon and for several years made a weekly trip to the Dartmoor National Park. My visits were made all-year-round and since the weather can make Dartmoor unsafe, I always carried a tent and survival equipment. Maybe because of my well equipped pack I often extended my trip to include an overnight stay.
The park is filled with wonders and history and includes some ancient stone bridges like the one shown here.This bridge is a granite, narrow, pack-horse bridge and there are many to be seen on Dartmoor.
