Heavy plant crossing
The below sign was spotted last weekend attached to the gate between Beardown and Lydford Tors. It seems that August - the firing free month - and the season of all things North Moor, will not mean freedom to Summer Hill, North of Cowsic Head. The sign is not clear of exactly what they will be doing to the "high plateau", but the mires project is all about re-wetting the moor, and the creation of pools and peat barriers.
The Dartmoor Mires Project would be grateful if you would avoid approaching the area around 596 808 when work is taking place. So get out there now while you have a chance!
