Working in partnership has become a major development within the DPA over the past few years. The Dartmoor Preservation Association recognises that every individual or organisation that takes an interest in Dartmoor has a part to play in its future.

The DPA is making every effort to work in partnership. By sharing resources, expertise and creativity we are forging a strong and integral platform for our association to succeed in it’s objectives.

We are also open to collaborate with corporate teams, and always welcome work parties to join us on the moors. As of 2023, we are thrilled to welcome Sandridge Barton as an official partner. The winery are donating 25p from each sale of their 'Don't Feed the Ponies' vintage range to the DPA. Do grab a bottle before they sell out.

The list of statutory bodies and organisations we are currently working with is growing. We are determined to continue this line of work and know that new initiatives and projects will always generate new interest, ideas and members.


“Our most important partner will always be YOU our members!”
