Why the 19th October?

"Exmoor National Park came into being on 19th October 1954 when the Designation Order made by the National Parks Commission was confirmed by the Minister for Housing and Local Government, Harold Macmillan, making Exmoor the 8th National Park in the UK.

Why is Exmoor so special?

Home to just under 10,000 residents Exmoor is one of the finest landscapes in the country. The National Park attracts in excess of 2m visitor days a year and is home to well over 1,000 local businesses. Ancient woodlands and heather clad moorlands  provide important habitats for all kinds of creatures great and small including the iconic free living Exmoor Ponies and the largest herds of Red deer in the country. At night Exmoor comes alive under some of the darkest skies in the country offering unrivalled opportunities to see thousands of stars above"
