  • It would be better on a nice day and you could walk around dartmoor. The site is impressive. Signs would have been nice to explain the site to visitors. Still impressive. Parking is very limited 3 or ...  more »

  • What a wonderful ancient bronze age settlement, felt deeply moved sitting in the ancient remains of the village that used to protect so long ago. You can see the mining of tin (almost looks like water has worn away the hill side) on the distant hill across the valley. Fills me with awe being so close to such history.
  • A great place, this large Bronce Age stone circle village. In a attractive scenary and environment, it easily could invite to settle down there even up to today, caring about the (nearly) wild cheep, horses, and cows around there..
  • Fascinating site, but only enough parking for about five cars at the side of the road. Walk up to either Hookney tor (north) or Hameldown tor (south) for panoramic views. Also look out across the valley for the stone rows and field systems on the hill to the west.
  • It really feels like you have travelled back in time to the bronze age. Such natural beauty.
  • Brilliant pronounced Bronze Age hut circles. Great to overlook the settlement from Hockney tor.
