Drive the B3212 through the heart of Dartmoor National Park and you'll see tall chimney stacks and a cluster of buildings in a remote moorland location near Bellever Forest. This is where gunpowder used to be manufactured.

Today, it's the location of local businesses including Powdermills Pottery. If you're looking to buy local pottery and other local crafts then Powdermills Pottery is essential visiting when on holiday in Dartmoor.
