The Setting of Dartmoor

"forbear from crossing the moor in those dark hours" [HOUN] One of the most iconic characters in the Sherlock Holmes stories is not a character at all. It's Dartmoor. As Holmes himself said of it, "Never been there? Ah, well, I don’t suppose you will forget your first visit.” Dartmoor is a land that's filled with beauty, mystery, and intrigue. In other words, the perfect setting for a Sherlock Holmes story. It's just a Trifle.
