Brendon Commoners discover hidden heritage

heartofexmoor blog

I had a fascinating time today out on Brendon Common with the Brendon Commoners’ Association and Rob Wilson-North, who is the Historic Environment Manager at Exmoor National Park

The moorland of Exmoor is an amazing living archive of human interaction with the land. The landscape features – some hidden and others not so hidden  – can be ‘read’ by experts like Rob. Look out for moorland walks and events open to the general visitor.

Special thanks to Jeremy Holtom for organising the event, and my compliments to the Stag Hunters Hotel in Brendon, who hosted and catered for the event. This was one of our moorland manager events… funded by HLF and LEADER money.

If you are an Exmoor moorland farmer we would welcome your suggestions for events that will help promote good moorland management, and help explore issues that are important to you. Please get in touch – I’d like to hear your ideas.
