A little more on Bodmin Moor

Bodmin Moor is a granite moorland in Cornwall, UK. It is 80 square miles (208 sq km) in size, and dates from the Carboniferous period. The name 'Bodmin Moor' is  a relatively recent name, actually being an Ordnance Survey invention of 1813! It was formerly known as Fowey Moor after the River Fowey which rises within it.

 

Bodmin Moor is the source of several of Cornwall's rivers: the River Fowey, the River Tiddy,  the River Lynher and the River Camel to name a few. King Arthur's Hall, which is thought to be a late Neolithic or early Bronze Age ceremonial site, can be found to the east of St Breward on the moor. More than 200 Bronze Age settlements with enclosures and field patterns have been recorded and many prehistoric stone barrows and circles lie scattered across the moor.
