Due to some car issues I haven’t been able to make it home to London for New Year and have been without wheels for a couple of days. Luckily one of my urbex mates was in the area so he offered to take me out to Dartmoor for something a bit different. A trip to Wistman’s Wood. the weather was spot on – misty and mysterious. Ideal for this location. The trees at Wistmans are stunted oaks and are said to have been there or hundreds of years. There are tales of the Devil living between the boulders. Druids once worshipped there and the woods are apparently one of the most haunted places on the moor.

There’s much to see here and I’d like to go back on a brighter day when the light is better to get some shots with a blue sky.
