Welcome to the Dartmoor Trust

The Dartmoor Trust is an independent charity established in 1996 to grant aid practical projects which help benefit Dartmoor, the region designated as a National Park, its landscape, communities and visitors. The Trust's principal activities involve the provision of grants and the proactive support of adopted projects.

We have granted money to support projects including community festivals, the repair of church bells, restoration of Dartmoor's leats and many more. Our largest project has been to establish the Dartmoor Archive - an online collection of tens of thousands of historic images dating back to the 1800s. You can view these photographs by clicking on 'Search the Archive' on the main menu.

The Dartmoor Trust welcomes applications for funding from any individual or organisation who feels that their project will make a positive impact on Dartmoor, it's people or landscape. Find out more and download an application form here
