R.D. Blackmore’s deep affection for, and understanding of, Exmoor’s landscape, people and legends shines through his immortal novel Lorna Doone.

Through words and pictures this book, The Lorna Doone Trail, traces the Exmoor adventures of Jan Ridd and Lorna Doone and the host of other characters such as Jeremy Stickles and Tom Faggus who feature in the grand sweep of the story.

Using Blackmore’s own words as the starting point, The Lorna Doone Trail helps to marry plot with place, using generous illustrations and expert commentary to put the narrative in its real-life context. It enables lovers of the novel and its abounding life to follow confidently in Blackmore’s footsteps and revisit the key locations of the timeless Exmoor story of derring-do, and love enduring against the odds.
