National Park Visitor Centre, Postbridge

Please note: The exhibition space is currently being updated and will re-open at the end of May to tell the story of Whitehorse Hill and the Bronze Age on Dartmoor.

Postbridge is centrally situated in the heart of the moor, providing an excellent gateway to family-friendly Bellever Forest, or the north moor for enthusiastic hill walkers.  

Come and see for yourself why Dartmoor is one of the most important areas in Western Europe for prehistoric archaeology with the Life, Death and Landscape exhibition and replicas from the Whitehorse Hill prehistoric burial, some of which have not been on display before.

See a superb display of stone tools and weapons, some fine replica bronze tools and weapons and a specially produced replica Bronze Age Trevisker Ware cooking pot. A film being screened during the exhibition tells the story of how the pot was made. A specially commissioned replica of the Hameldon dagger, possibly one of the most important prehistoric finds on Dartmoor is also on display. Siting the exhibition at Postbridge is particularly appropriate as the Centre lies within a short walk of some fine Bronze Age remains including settlement and burial sites.
