The little brook

By jayvee04
This delightful little brook on Dartmoor is called Newleycombe Lake. Why 'lake' I don't know, as it is clearly not a lake. As I understand it, this is not the only brook on the moor that is called a lake. I believe it's to do with the local terminology.
Call it what you will, but it is beautiful with its many miniature waterfalls tumbling over the rocks, and a perfect place to rest for a while on a warm summer day.
Its location is near Norsworthy Bridge and the Burrator Reservoir.

Nice one Jean. BYW went to Venny Falls today far too full to get into the water so nothing better than my previous shots. Did go up Bench Tor though, lookout for the story in my Blog on Sunday. https://www.ephotozine.com/user/topsyrm-149719/blog

I'm not surprised that the river was so full after last nights heavy rainfall. So I guess you'll be going back another day. At least you made a nice detour up to Bench Tor.
I shall certainly check out your blog on Sunday - and thanks for the link, Paul. ...I'll have to put a note on my calendar so I don't forget! Smile
