Dartmoor covers some 954 square kilometres of granite uplands, Tors and areas of outstanding beauty that can be seen in all seasons, wet and dry. Walks on Dartmoor can be relaxing and exhilarating, calm and stormy and this walk around 3 of Dartmoor’s reservoirs was on a calm sunny day with water levels in the reservoir’s somewhat low.

- Early Summer – the rhododendrons
- Trenchford – Pike Fishing
- Kennick – Trout fishing
