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.
River Jelly Lichen
Collema dichotomum is a nationally important species of aquatic lichen that is found in the fast flowing acidic waters of Exmoor's River Barle, which provide some of the UKs best sites for this interesting and unusual plant. More on this species from the Natural History Museum
A busy little town acting as a service centre for southern Exmoor. It lies in an attractive setting where the deep and wooded Barle valley broadens into meadows before joining the Exe. A medieval bridge spans the river near the former workhouse, now the National Park Authority's offices. There is a National Park Centre adjoining the Heritage Centre, which has an art gallery and displays about Dulverton and the surrounding woodlands.
