Belstone village, Devon

Belstone is a village of about 250 people situated on the northern fringes of Dartmoor in West Devon District. It lies about three miles southeast of Okehampton and is popular with walkers as it offers an excellent base to start their walks on the moor as well as other visitors who wish to explore Dartmoor or North and West Devon.

Belstone is probably best known for the Nine Maidens stone circle. The village appears in the Domesday Book of 1086 as 'Bellestam'.

It is possible that Fatherford, in the north west of Belstone parish, was one stage in a Roman extension of the Fosse Way road from Exeter to Launceston.

The story of 'The Ballad of the Belstone Fox' by David Rook was based on the area, later made into a film 'The Belstone Fox' in 1973.
