This was taken looking down from the top of the Dam.
Below, these trees are right opposite the small car park, i love the texture of the Moss everywhere.
Again from the Dam wall, with Dartmoor hills behind.
Again these Trees (sorry) are just so lovely, below.
We jumped into the car and started off on the road that circles completely the Reservoir. Just a few hunded yards into the Journey is this very pretty Waterfall. Please click on any image to enlarge it.
A further half a mile on we found this clearing with a clear path one side and the ruins of this building on the other.
Below, this board (enlarge it) tells of the demise of "Longstone Manor"around the late 1800s when this Reservoir and Dam were started.
Below, whats left of the Manor house, a lot of the stone was removed but luckily some was saved in these remains. If these are not cared for soon it will be unrecognisable which would be a shame.
More of the remains, imagine if the house was rebuilt right here as close to the waters edge, what a desirable house that would be.
Below, A full circle, now almost back to where we came from. I have just checked these pictures after coming back to this post (it was saved) and discover 2 pictures missing, how on earth am i going to put those in?. Annoying thing was that one picture of the back of the Dam was in my opinion the best one !!! b***er b***er.
Oh well i knew i shouldn't have started a post so late, i always get problems.
Joke of the day.
Again folks i have decided to forgo the joke of the day as, I have just heard the sad news that one of my very good Australian blogging buddies has passed away.
So Gwen, all my love R I P.
