Photographer's Note

The River Tavy rises a short distance south east of Fur Tor on the high moors of the northern plateau of Dartmoor National Park. It's joined by a number of brooks or streams before it cuts through the glorious Tavy Cleave on its way south west to Tavistock. Extensive dark mixed plantation covers its valley sides, creating a sense of isolation and secrecy. Watermeadows on the valley floors and pockets of broadleaved woodland add variations in colour and texture. Streams glide between craggy wooded banks covered in mosses and ferns, tumble over boulders and rocks, and flow under ancient bridges.
