Tottiford was the first Dartmoor (Devon, UK) reservoir to be opened in 1861 and heralded a busy era of dam construction which continued through to 1907, by which time the Dartmoor area was the site of five reservoirs. By the end of the 20th century there were 8 reservoirs on the Moor, which is a National Park. The reservoirs were needed to supply water to the rapidly growing towns in the lowland areas between Dartmoor and the coast.
Tottiford is on the east side of Dartmoor between Bovey Tracey and Moretonhampstead. In 2010 TV’s Channel 4 screened a “Time Team” programme showing prehistoric remains including stone rows and circles. As these had been drowned when the reservoir was built the water had to be drained for the filming but is now back to it’s former beauty and serenity.

Camera used: Vivitar vivicam 3945s

I live in the UK and in 2011 when I joined Red Bubble,started experimenting with different settings and angles. I enjoy finding suitable pictures of flowers, Scotland, reflections, lamps and seats and have now branched out into different subjects.
In 2013 I finally realised my dream of visiting Australia and New Zealand. Whilst there I purchased a Pentax camera so have been able to expand my portfolio of flower macros among other new and exciting subjects.

    Interesting reading, pity they drowned the stones, no soul some planners – lovely shot

  • Yes you are right – when a reservoir was muted for Swincome and turned down the planners thought they could drown the entire village of Harbertonford!!!!! Didn’t happen though – too much local opposition.
