Looking forward to conditions similar to these from a few years ago, just enough snow but not too much to allow access onto the high moor.

This shot of Nuns Cross at Nuns Cross Farm is near to Princetown where it pretty much always snows first.

The conditions can change very quickly so you also need to think about your plans very carefully to avoid getting trapped in your vehicle on the moor as the roads become impassable.

A great location to visit anytime of the year, having shot the farm previously in moonlight, it is not to difficult to get to but it does involve a short walk along a path.

I once sold a print to a lady who claimed her grandmother was born in this remote farmhouse, this building is now a hostel that can be rented for group stays from DNP.

A cross is thought to have existed here since 1240 and a fantastic historical reference to Nuns Cross or Crux Siwardi Cross can be found on the Legendary Dartmoor Website, follow this link to read more on their website.
