Welcome to Exmoor National Park
Situated in the south west of Britain, Exmoor National Park contains an amazing variety of landscapes within its 267 square miles (692 square kilometers). A unique landscape of moorland, woodland, valleys and farmland, shaped by people and nature over thousands of years. Where high cliffs plunge into the Bristol Channel, and cosy pubs and tearooms offer delicious local produce.
- Red deer
Red deer are the largest wild land animals in England. Adult stags stand about 115 cm at the shoulder. Hinds are about 15 cm less. Only stags grow antlers. They shed them in April and early May and new ones start to grow immediately. As the stag gets older the antlers have more 'points' until they reach old age and start to 'go back'.

- Porlock Weir
A picturesque hamlet and former working harbour, enclosed by lock gates. The gates are now used mainly to flush pebbles from the harbour entrance, which cuts through the shingle ridge. Porlock Weir is on the Coast Path and a starting point for walks to Culbone or Porlock Marsh. There is a car park, toilets, pub, restaurant and shops.
