Home - Remembrance & Memorials - Local Graves & Memorials - Tavistock


The 13th-century Buckland Abbey south of Tavistock was lived in by both the (Sir Richard) Grenville and (Sir Francis) Drake families of seafaring fame and contains a maritime history museum. The austere granite Castle Drogo on the northeastern edge of Dartmoor is Great Britain's last private home built (1910–30) on a grand scale.

The small market centres and administrative centres of Tavistock and Okehampton are located on the southwestern and northern edges of Dartmoor, respectively.
