Theo Brown and the Folklore of Dartmoor is the sixth volume in the Devon Folklore Tapes Series. The album provides acousmatic soundscapes for fourteen Dartmoor tales collected by the late Devon folklorist Theo Brown, whose spirit and research guided the project throughout.

Initially released as a limited box-set in 2014, this long-awaited second edition contains all the original content in the more wieldy format of a double LP release. To ensure the highest quality, the audio has been comprehensively remastered from the original tapes for this reissue. An extensive hand-sewn booklet in the gatefold sleeve contains extended research notes, a new essay on Theo Brown, and additional photographs.
