Click through the gallery below to discover two artists’ responses to the largest continuous stretch of woodland in Dartmoor

White Wood (Dartmoor National Park) is an ancient woodland running from Dartmeet to Buckfastleigh, Devon. From the 19th century until the 1930s the woodland was intensively managed in order to provide bark for the busy local tanneries. Evidence of this historic coppice management is seen in the many charcoal hearths scattered throughout the woodland. White Wood is home to a rich assemblage of Atlantic mosses and liverworts, lichen communities, fern species and distinctive birds.
