South Brent is a Dartmoor village that sits on the River Avon in the south of the National Park and prospered as a woollen centre. Nearby, on the moors, are numerous prehistoric remains ranging from hut circles to barrows and impressive Tors that are the stubs of past mountains. St. Petroc’s Church has an impressive Norman tower and 12th century font.
For a glimpse into intriguing history, it has to be Buckfast Abbey set within meadows edging the banks of the River Dart, home to Benedictine Monk. A tour of the church unravels mysteries, complete with a produce shop where items are made by Nuns and Monks from all over the world and a Book Shop that tempts you to linger longer than you should. Venture to the rear of the shop and intriguing exhibits tell of times long past.
A place of true beauty and masses of historic monuments, this is the place to be if the seaside is not what you enjoy.
