Old Barn Through Gate

Farm gate and stone barn in the village of Sheepstor in the Dartmoor National Park. The village is near Sheeps Tor, the tor from where it gets its name, with the Burrator Reservoir a short walk away. I thought this image was a perfect subject for a black and white conversion.
Jean Fry | China clay-works 'pond'

China clay-works 'pond'

China clayworks site near Shaugh Moor on Dartmoor. This 'pond', I believe, is known as a mica dam, which is used to separate the china-clay (kaolin) from the water. There are several of these in the area, mostly now disused. This part of the clay-works is no longer in operation. It is, however, an interesting place to explore, though strictly speaking, not really allowed.
