IMPORTANT UPDATE: We attempted to repeat this walk in December 2011, only to find part of the path blocked by the landowner. It is no longer possible to make a complete circuit of the reservoir.
While we were on holiday in Devon last month, we were looking at a map of the area and spotted a small reservoir nearby. Now, I don't know about you, but reservoirs always seem to me to be good places to go for a walk. They usually have a path around the outside and you get loads of great views over the water as you walk. This was no exception, and the bright yellow gorse bushes added an extra splash of colour to the landscape.
Being a strange kind of tourist, I also find myself fascinated by the incredible hulks of engineering that are dams. It must be quite a challenge to build one of these in the path of a river.
Thanks to Andy for taking most of the photos on this walk!
