§ Mr. Freeman
Willsworthy Camp provides important facilities for regular and TA forces using the Dartmoor training areas, including the Willsworthy range. The camp is, however, in need of early replacement. Rather than rebuild on this site, which occupies a prominent position on the moor, the Ministry of Defence has recently purchased a suitable alternative small area of land at Higher Beardon farm, near Lydford. With new accommodation provided there the site of the present camp would be returned to moorland. The Dartmoor national park committee are aware of our plans in general terms and we will shortly be submitting our proposals through the normal planning consultation procedures.
