Moretonhampstead

Today the most common association with Moretonhampstead is the moor – Dartmoor – which rises to a height of two thousand feet within sight of the town. Four thousand years ago Bronze Age settlers divided up the area and created the largest stone circle on Dartmoor on top of Mardon Down, just outside the present town and their Iron Age successors built substantial hill forts at Cranbrook and Wooston in the Teign Valley, part of a series circling the moor that can still be seen today. Only when the Saxons arrived about 682 AD did the area become a settlement called Moor-tun: settlement in the moor.
