The Narrator Plantation is a lovely woodland area near the Burrator Reservoir in the Dartmoor National Park. The moss covered tree trunks and banks are a common sight on Dartmoor, and irresistible to touch the velvety surface.
The woodland is coming to life in early May on the Narrator Plantation. This plantation is on the northeast side of the Burrator Reservoir in the Dartmoor National Park. Fairly close, beyond the trees, is Sheeps Tor which dominates the local landscape and the hamlet of Sheepstor which nestles beneath it. In this scene, the colour of the new leaves echoes the colour of the moss covered rocks. Moss is in abundance on Dartmoor: on the rocks, the tree trunks and sometimes their branches too have an attractive covering. This area is beautiful in autumn, but for me, it is the fresh spring colours I love the most when new life is beginning all around.
Perhaps not a carpet of bluebells, but very pretty where they adorn the banks of this delightful undulating woodland. Photo taken in the Burrator area of Dartmoor in the middle of May.

A lovely wooded area in the Burrator area of the Dartmoor National Park. Especially lovely when the bluebells are in flower over the undulating woodland floor.
The sun filters through the trees onto the bracken and moss covered stone wall in the Beechcroft Plantation on Dartmoor. The stone wall is probably what is left of a farm abandoned many years ago when the Burrator Reservoir was constructed nearby.
A beautiful autumn day for a walk around the lovely Burrator Reservoir. The light filtering through the trees brought out the colours of the leaves and increased the pleasure of the walk.

This lovely track is near Burrator Reservoir in the Dartmoor National Park UK
The River Plym here is just south of Shaugh Bridge on the Dartmoor border in Devon, UK. After heavy rain, the river crashes noisily over the boulders and rocks of the river bed. It is a dramatic sight (and sound) at these times, but always a wonderful place to be and to walk along the riverbank. On the northern side of the bridge, which falls into Dartmoor, the River Meavy joins the Plym and from here, the river makes its way to the sea at Plymouth Sound.
Autumn along the track to Deancombe. The track leads from Norsworthy Bridge, Burrator in the Dartmoor National Park. A pleasant stroll any time of the year but especially in autumn and spring.
Moss covered rocks and tree trunks in a Burrator woodland area on Dartmoor. Following a period of very heavy rain, the moss looks extra lush, and there are many little rivulets and mini waterfalls created in the grass by the downpours.
