From the dam down to the River Meavy back up the other side through the bluebell woods (now well past their best) to see Burrator Tor
With this part in the field...
..and this part in the woods
Then down to the road and the reservoir and this one is well down as well - so South West Water must have lots of water somewhere else!
On to a disused farm..
...with an apple crusher and granite troughs nearby
and a place for extracting the grain using wind.
We followed a road normally covered by water to the weir at the end of the reservoir and by now it was raining. Around the north of the reservoir and back once more fairy land...
Through the woods again to an old road called Wembly Way. This used to go through the reservoir but is now a place where various items are kept from places now flooded by the water.
And then on to the Royal Oak. Walking tonight John, Mike, Raz, Tom, David, Keith, Sue, Pete and Anne
