As we are still on the southern half of the Shroppie and I seem to have done that to death this year I thought some more from our weekend in Plymouth might be acceptable.
Last Monday was a real scorcher so we thought a nice walk in the woods would be acceptable. On the edge of Dartmoor is Burrator Reservoir which is largely surrounded by woodland, a mix of conifer plantation and broadleaved wood and that is where we headed.
At the side of the car park at Norsworthy Bridge there is a reminder of the moors industrial past.
On the flat area above the car park was evidence of a modern industry,
Walking up beside the River Meavy brings you to Leather Tor Bridge,
As you cross the bridge and walk up the old track
It feels like I've just written a guide book to South Dartmoor, so to all those looking for narrowboats, sorry.
Addendum: Further research reveals that the cross is indeed Lowery Cross, a.k.a. Cross Gate Cross and is on the ancient track from Walkhampton via Fox Tor to the Holne/Buckfast area.
