Dartmoor Life in the 1st World War returns to Princetown

The unique and award winning exhibition Dartmoor life in the 1st World War will return to the National Park Visitor Centre in Princetown this October with additional information and exhibits.  

The Exhibition, commemorating the 1st World War concentrates on the impact of the War on the people of Dartmoor; the requisitioning of horses, conscription, suffragettes, the increased role of women,  the conscientious objectors, the treatment of the wounded and many other aspects of life on Dartmoor, before, during and after the War.

Curated by Peter Mason, the exhibition draws on the collections of community archives and local history groups. It also includes material from newspapers of the day, memoirs and diaries written by people who lived in the area during the War. Photographs have also been lent by individuals and organisations.

The exhibition is presented by the Dartmoor Trust and supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The Exhibition will open between 4 October and 25 November 2018. The Centre is currently open daily, 10am – 5pm (10am – 3.30pm from 15 October) and from 29 October will be open Tuesday- Sunday, 10am – 3.30pm. Admission is FREE
