Dartmoor Preservation Association

The DPA was founded at the end of the nineteenth century amidst concerns that enclosures were preventing access to the open moorland and that Commoners were therefore unable to exercise their commons rights. Today it continues to be at the forefront of campaigns to protect the moor from overdevelopment and carries out conservation work to preserve the archaeological artefacts of the area.

Founded 1883
