A little bit too much in full sun these two, but they give a nice idea of what the countryside is like around Dartmoor,

John.

John I like seeing the countryside shots you have posted. Actually I had no idea of the varying terrain in your location until I saw some of them.

Lovely pictures John. I love Dartmoor. You're very lucky living so close to one of England's finest areas of outstanding natural beauty.

Many thanks for the comments!

Bob: the waters should be clear: this leat used to carry drinking water from springs on the Moor down to the city of Plymouth. These days the water is diverted into the local reservoir, so folks no longer have to concern themselves with how many cattle have been bathing in their drinking water before it reaches them :-)

Lovely photos John. Personally I prefer the first one with its long perspective. I assume a "leat" is a small canal? It's not a word I heard before down here.

Cheers,
Ollie

Thanks Ollie: yes a "leat" is what we call a man-made water course that carries water rather than boats if you see what I mean.
