After the fog

By Arvorphoto    
What a difference an hour makes! Low cloud and fog shrouded Burrator Reservoir on my arrival.

The glorious vista that would have greeted passengers to Burrator Halt. Built in 1924, as the area around Burrator Reservoir had become an attraction to ramblers after the completion of the reservoir in 1898.
Burrator Halt was on the Princetown Railway which opened with trains operating from Horrabridge until the opening of Yelverton station in 1885.

The area is still a magnet for ramblers and tourists but sadly the railway closed in 1958, much of the trackbed is now a footpath/cycle track.
