The people of Dartmoor

“…it draws out something deep, almost primitive, in those who are part of it, and it is amongst moor people that I have made my greatest friends.” Sylvia Needham

Each person brings with them a love of the Whiteface Dartmoor Sheep, and each leaves a memory to be cherished by those they leave behind…may they rest in peace.
