Burrator Reservoir

Click through the gallery below to discover three artists’ responses to the extensive conifer plantation on the fringe of the moor

When Burrator Dam was completed in 1898 Burrator Woodland was planted to protect the water catchment and for timber production. In recent times large strands of infected larch have been felled. They have been replanted with a greater range of species, so increasing biodiversity and improving the local landscape.  Extensive remains of hut circles, old farmsteads and tin mining lie within the wood.
