National Parks Fortnight

Join us in celebrating a milestone anniversary this National Parks Fortnight from 27 March – 11 April!

The National Parks and Access to the Countryside Act was passed in 1949 resulting in the first National Parks in the UK being designated in 1951 – Dartmoor was one of four areas of land to receive National Park status that year, and this year sees us celebrate our 70th anniversary.

Despite the restrictions which are currently in place due to Coronavirus there are still plenty of ways to discover more about Dartmoor National Park wherever you are.
