The gateway to Exmoor and one of its most atmospheric market towns, Dulverton lies on the banks of the rivers Barle and Exe. The Exmoor National Park Authority’s headquarters is here, as is the Dulverton National Park Visitor Centre. Nearby are moorland vistas found in R D Blackmore’s famous novel ‘Lorna Doone’ and a statue of the eponymous heroine.
Some five miles away is the 17-span medieval stone clapper bridge of Tarr Steps. Also not far away is the mysterious Caractacus Stone, possibly a memorial to the British king who fought the Romans.
