A plan to put a stairlift on one of Dartmoor's best known tors has been rejected by planners.
Artist's Impression: How the Haytor stairlift could have looked
Artist Alex Murdin had applied to Dartmoor National Park Planning Authority for permission for the stairlift at Haytor Rocks.
Mr Murdin, 35, said his application was to improve access for disabled people.
The planning authority said such a lift would cause "significant landscape harm" and have a "detrimental impact" on the natural beauty of the area.
Planners had been recommended to refuse the scheme.
There had been 95 letters of objection, and planning officers described the application as "frivolous and time-wasting".
Mr Murdin, from Ashburton, said his application was both serious and genuine, and the refusal of the National Park to take his proposal seriously was "disappointing".
