An Introduction to Bodmin Moor - £5.95
You do not
have to go far to find treasures on Bodmin Moor. Everywhere you
look there areprehistoric remains, moorland streams tumble
over granite boulders and under medieval bridges, gaunt engine
houses, abandoned by Victorian miners, stand sentinel over the
moor's edge. Heather and gorse paint the moorland purple and gold
whilst the skylark fills the summer sky with his song.
This book has been written as an A-Z guide to introduce people to
the moor. In it you will find information about the towns, villages
and settlements that are dotted across this varied upland
landscape. Many points of interest are included, from rocky tors to
underground caverns and from Neolithic enclosures to 20th century
reservoirs. All the places mentioned are accessible to the public
and the majority lie within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding
Natural Beauty (AONB).
"The book is not a walking guide, but all the sites featured have
grid references, and these correspond with both the map in the
book, and the Ordnance Survey Explorer 109 map. The idea is to go
out and enjoy the moor, search out the places featured, and perhaps
discover new things for yourself."
Mark Camp, Author
The A-Z guide has been set up to make the book as
informative and straight forward as possible. Each letter has a
main heading (1) as does every entry (2). If an entry relates to a
specific location on the moor there is a grid reference (3) which
corresponds to the OS map whilst another reference (4) relates to
the book's own centrefold map.
