Well I think most people, if they’ve heard of Dartmoor, will have heard of Princetown! Most famous of course for it’s austere and forbidding prison which was built during the Napoleonic Wars, but also for being the place where Sir Arthur Conan Doyle found his inspiration when he came up with the idea of writing Hound of the Baskervilles.
