Moretonhampstead's Special Qualities

Moretonhampstead is in Dartmoor National Park, the most highly protected category of landscape in the UK. As such, it might be presumed to be immune to the pressures of the modern world. However, it is under threat – both in respect of cuts to services and the development of cherished views and open spaces.

Moretonhampstead’s Special Qualities is an informal network of local residents and well-wishers who want to remind developers, planning officers, councillors and other interested parties of exactly what makes this town and the surrounding area special – for those who were born here, those who come to visit, those who have chosen to make it their home, and those who will live here in the future.

If you live in the Moreton area and wish to give us your support, or just want to keep up to date with our activities, please do get in touch by clicking the links below and finding out more about us, and perhaps joining our network.
