Moor Memories 

We recorded the stories of people who lived and worked on Dartmoor during the 20th century. Collectively the memories tell of a way of life which in many ways endured on Dartmoor for centuries but has, in just one generation, largely come to an end; a life without mains supplies of water or power in remote areas with limited transport, when all that was required for daily life was produced and acquired locally or gleaned from the moor itself.  

Here you can listen to samples from the archive.
