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. 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.
Named after its resemblence to the lungs, there are 4 species of Lungwort (Lobaria) found on Exmoor.They are some of our largest and most easily recognised lichen species. They grow on the bark of native trees and are some of the most sensitive lichens to air pollution.
Luxborough is a scattered village with pub, church and car park. It is a good centre for exploring the forested parts of the Brendon Hills, with walks over the Chargot estate to Kennisham, over Croydon Hill to the deserted village of Clicket, or across the open heaths of Withycombe and Rodhuish Commons.
