Exmoor- Europe`s first Dark Sky Reserve!

Exmoor National Park has just received international recognition as an outstandingly natural and unspoilt place by becoming designated
Europe`s first Dark Sky Reserve. One of only two Dark Sky Reserves in the world!
People living and working in and around the National Park will receive information and advice about how to preserve the lack of light polution in this area. Few of the small villages and hamlets within Exmoor National Park can boast street lights anyway, you carry a torch out there!  The scattering of farms and cottages across the landscape were built, tucked away from prevailing winds, into the combes and woodlands.  As a result, standing on Dunkery Beacon and looking across towards Dartmoor in the distance, no houses are visible. Neither do their night lights interrupt your 360 degree gaze upwards and sideways, at the most starry heavens it is possible to see in all of England.
