There are remains of a 4,000 year old Bronze Age village high on Dartmoor. Because the foundations and walls were built of stone, it is still possible to see individual houses as well as the outer surrounding wall and pathways. Dartmoor ponies and sheep keep the grass well under control.
Also on Dartmoor are old granite stone quarries, including one at Haytor. The stone was used in several famous structures, including the New London Bridge completed in 1831. This granite was transported from the moor via a granite tramway, stretches of which are still visible. The trucks were pulled by horses.
