A new book, offering a unique insight into centuries of life on Exmoor, will be launched at an event at Dulverton Town Hall this week.

Written by Mary Siraut (the VCH County Editor at Somerset County Council) and with a foreword by Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Exmoor: the Making of an English Upland, looks at the history of landscape and community, from prehistoric times to present day.

The book has been produced as part of the Victoria County History's Heritage Lottery-funded project, England's Past for Everyone (EPE).

The Exmoor project is also supported locally by the Exmoor National Park Authority, North Devon District Council and Somerset County Council and the Exmoor Society.

The book will be for sale at National Park Centres and from the on-line shop on the Authority's website: www.exmoor-nationalpark.gov.uk
