The Lustleigh Fault in North-East Dartmoor

  • F. G. H. Blyth (a1)

The north-eastern area of Dartmoor is traversed by a series of straight valleys which follow fault lines. One fault-system, which crosses the granite from near Lustleigh north-westwards to Stickle-path, is described in detail, and its relationships to structures in a wider area are briefly discussed.
