Leat

By DTM  
The Grimstonestone and Sortridge Leat at Windy Post on Dartmoor. The little waterfall is a weir that allows a certain amount of water to flow off to a few farms and dwellings. On the left you can see the transmitter mast at North Hessary Tor, Vixen Tor is in the centre and on the right is King's Tor.

Thanks for your comments on Muddy Corner.

Nice shot, unusual at that location. I think though the Tor in the center above the waterfall is actually Kings Tor with the one on the right being Swelltor Quarries. You can see Vixen Tor, just the very top of it, follow the line from the mast through Yellowmead Farm and it is just above the left edge of the granite that forms the base for the waterfall.

Thank you, topsyrm, you're quite right Vixen Tor is much closer and that makes sense. Thank you very much for your comment and that information.
