The high plateau of Exmoor is criss-crossed by numerous streams and slashed by a few deep river valleys. It rises up steeply from the gentler farmland to dramatic cliffs viewing the Somerset/Devon border and the Severn estuary from the highest point of some 1705 feet. Since 1954, Exmoor has been a National Park, some of which is owned by the National Trust, but much is still owned and operated as private farms. The whole area is scattered with tiny hamlets and historical sites, making it a very interesting visit for us when Exmoor farmers call us to provide:<br /><br />With historic buildings in and around the town, some national monuments, some still in use, owned privately or by the local council, we often find ourselves called on in the Exmoor area to ensure that when the grime from traffic, bird fouling, general day to day soiling or even graffiti is removed from a treasured building, there is no damage to the often delicate stonework beneath.<br /><br />From removal of old paint for a domestic redecoration project, or the intricate cleaning of stone work in a cathedral using the poultice method, you will find that wherever you are in Exmoor or Somerset, you will get a quick response, highly competitive quotation and thorough cleaning from DJ Cooper.
