HIGHER SHILSTONE: MEMORIES OF A MEDIEVAL FARMSTEAD ON DARTMOOR
Talk & visual presentation by Chris Chapman

In the summer of 1974 Chris Chapman set off on a three week walking tour of Dartmoor, together with a donkey called Mistletoe. When they arrived in the village of Throwleigh, Chris was so taken with the place that he decided to camp for a while, photographing life in the village including afternoon tea with the owners of a beautiful Dartmoor longhouse tucked in under Shilstone Tor. The photographs he took became the foundation for a Dartmoor archive which now spans forty-five years, and in 1976 he chose the village of Throwleigh as his permanent home.
