The Dark Side

A meeting with Dr Faye Davey, a GIS natural data specialist from the University of Plymouth, made me realise out of all the fieldwork areas I have been to, it’s Bellever Forest on Dartmoor that is the perfect partner to Crenver Grove in Cornwall. I have to pick two areas that tagscape is going to concentrate on from this moment on – we discussed how these two areas are opposites. One is the summery light filled memory of English childhood, the other is the dark Germanic stuff of nightmares. And then Crenver is quiet with local communities only knowing it is there, whereas Bellever is well signed for the tourist. Now I am going to learn about the different soils in each place.
