Heritage Open Days - Higher Uppacott

10:30 - 16:00
A longhouse is a medieval farmhouse in which both people and cattle were accommodated under a single roof. Higher Uppacott is a grade one listed building of rare and national importance. It is one of the few remaining examples of this historic building type, which has retained its lower or shippon end (cattle shelter) in its original unaltered state. One of the things that makes Higher Uppacott so special is that its development from its medieval beginnings through to the present day is still clearly evident within the fabric of the building. This development also vividly illustrates the major changes in domestic family life and the social structures of Dartmoor farming folk over the centuries. Higher Uppacott is also undergoing some changes with improvement works being carried out as part of the Moor than meets the Eye project the most obvious of these externally is the thatching work which has taken place. Internal works are also planned but in order to do this it has been necessary to empty the house so it is not being presented as it may appear in some pictures at the moment. The visit on Friday will be conducted by the Dartmoor National Park Authority Historic Buildings Officer. On Thursday, Saturday & Sunday by a National Park volunteer guide. Event not suitable for children under the age of 8. Please be aware when booking there are uneven floors, low beams and steps/stairs. Tours take place daily over the four days 10:30 - 12:30 & 2:00 - 4:00, the tour takes approximately 1.5 - 2hrs

Whitehorse Hill Community Play

19 September 2015  18:00 - 20:00
The Whitehorse Hill community play is set to be performed on 19th and 20th of September 2015. The story of this piece is inspired by the archeological finds at the Whitehorse Hill cist. Who could the girl in the cist have been? Why was she so important? MED Theatre have been developing a story that explores how our ideas of heritage, knowledge and female strength have been passed down and evolved through time. The play consists of scenes from seven different periods of history, all inspired by key events in central Dartmoor’s past. The performance will invite the audience to take a journey through time and explore these themes together. Taking place in the beautiful setting of Bellever forest, led by lantern bearers from Princetown Primary school, this adventurous experience will be one you will want to join! Directions to Bellever Forest car park: If you are driving from Postbridge, turn left towards Bellever, follow the road over the hill and down to the second car park, by the river where you will find the box office. This will be a walking performance, so please wear suitable shoes and clothing for outdoors on Dartmoor. Suitable for all ages (children under 10 should be accompanied by adults). This project has been developed in partnership with the Moor than meets the eye scheme.
Location  Meet at Bellever Forest car park  Booking: Yes  Charge: Free to attend but please book tickets

Visit a 14th Century Dartmoor Longhouse

26 September 2015  10:30 - 12:30
Visit a 14th Century Dartmoor Longhouse. A longhouse is a medieval farmhouse in which both people and cattle were accommodated under a single roof. Higher Uppacott is a grade one listed building of rare and national importance. It is one of the few remaining examples of this historic building type, which has retained its lower or shippon end (cattle shelter) in its original unaltered state. One of the things that makes Higher Uppacott so special is that its development from its medieval beginnings through to the present day is still clearly evident within the fabric of the building. This development also vividly illustrates the major changes in domestic family life and the social structures of Dartmoor farming folk over the centuries. Event suitable for children age 8+.
