Unveiling the newly restored Ten Commandments Stones! (Head over to our Facebook page Enjoy Dartmoor to watch the final reveal film)
Funded by Parishscapes and the Dartmoor Communities Fund, this Moor Than Meets The Eye project aimed to revive a much-loved monument on picturesque Buckland Beacon. Iain Cotton (Conservator and Lettering Expert) arrived on site 22nd May 2017, where work began clearing out the lettering in the stones. The 'commandments' slowly came to light as the second phase (beginning 12th June) saw Iain painstakingly re-carving the letters. By 30th June the Ten Commandment Stones had been successfully painted and completed.
