About My Walk

Burrator Reservoir is a reservoir on the south side of Dartmoor  Devon. It is one of a number of reservoirs and dams that were built over the course of the 19th and 20th centuries in the area now covered by Dartmoor National Park to supply drinking water to the city of Plymouth.

This was a nice easy walk around the reservoir with a variety of different scenery.

It was a pleasant stroll and extremely enjoyable.
