Grimspound


Grimspound

In my previous entry I wrote about our stay at Headland Warren Farm on Dartmoor. Across the road, just above the farm house is this beautifully preserved megalithic village known as Grimspound.

Diana walked with me here one evening, early in our stay, after she had finished her day's work. On this walk we were accompanied by her dogs Heron and Hookie who we might meet in this a little later. In this photograph can be seen the lower wall of one of the hut circles in the village. The stone wall would have had a teepee style roof made from reeds. In the distance the stone wall of the village can be seen.

The village is located in a saddle just below a hill known as Hookney Tor.
