Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Avenue of honour consists of original trees and carvings made from the remains of trees that have had to be felled. For such a small town it is a very impressive display.

Visited Dartmoor looking at property in the area and came across these awesome tree carvings! The huge one in the park is definitely a spectacular piece of work! Quite little town.

Seventy Atlantic Cedar trees were planted at Dartmoor in 1918 to honour local service people. When many of these trees were deemed to be unhealthy and dangerous in the 1990's the Dartmoor community developed a concept for an amazing artwork.
Nine of the trees were sculptured by chainsaw carver Kevin Gilders as a memorial to the local war veterans. There is also a large "nursery rhyme tree" and various carved animals on the village green. We collected a pamphlet from the general store which described the significance of each of the memorial tree carvings. Also available is a "Dartmoor Heritage Trail" map which is interesting.
While in Dartmoor make sure you visit Dartmoor District Museum (just over the road) with it's interesting collection, and Nowlee Arts & Crafts. The craft area has an amazing collection of owls on display and lovely patchwork items etc for sale. Apparently there is also a produce market the second Saturday of every month.
Also pop into the op shop in the old school. The shop is clean with a large variety of items, and it supports many local groups.

Had heard about the carved statues on our travels so stopped to have a look on our way further east. Very impressive and obviously done with a great deal of heart. Dartmoor appears to be a very small area but they have really done a lot to make their tribute. We had been told that there were other carvings across the bridge - there were - fairy tales also carved in wood - the whole area is very attractive and I would imagine kids could have fun trying to identify all the fairy tale characters especially in the tree statue. Overall very much worth the stop in our long day's trip

Like in many towns across australia an avenue of honour was planting in 1918 too honour the serviceman and nurses from the dartmoor district. The atlantic cedars over time began to wear the mark of time and arborists gave the sad news that the trees couldn't be saved. The town in consultation with the families of the honoured decided to turn them into tree carvings that honoured and told a story. The end result is truly amazing. The names of the honoured are also on the memorial wall of the Dartmoor Hall

There are a line of nine statues made by chainsawing logs to create different aspects of WW1. The range from bottom to top. The Nurse and Sad News to Parting and The Game. They are well made and tell the story of men in the trenches. It would be a shame if people are not made aware of this well crafted piece of art.
