About Two Bridges

One of Dartmoor's most popular tourist destinations and yet there is little here save for a pleasant hotel. But it is the junction of the two major routes across central Dartmoor, and thus attracts a lot of visitors in the summer.

A short distance to the north-east lies Crocken Tor, where once a so called 'Parliament' of tinners met to enact special laws governing the stannery towns. In general such meetings took place on a very occasional basis.

Further north but within easy reach the visitor will find beautiful Wistman's Wood. The wood is close to the West Dart River, it is a wonderland full of mother nature's rich bounty, and includes a fine collection of rare dwarf oak trees. It is a glorious place to visit on a quiet summer evening when everywhere is dappled by the light and shade of a setting sun. The wood takes on the feel of a secret place, the silence is deeply spiritual and the only sound is the early evening twittering of birds and the rustle of leaves beneath your feet.

When visiting this part of Dartmoor, Two Bridges and Wistman's Wood is a must.
