Dartington Deer Park – a larder for the nobility
Joan served for a number of years as our Secretary and has always had a keen interest in local history. Dartington Deer Park has been restored and restocked thanks to a large lottery grant. A 3 mile footpath will enable us to see the rabbit warren, a medieval viewing platform (& hopefully some fallow deer), the groynes along the Dart to maximise the catch of salmon and enjoy this asset.
