Open moorland, dramatic tors and a Scheduled Monument – Meldon is a truly unique place in  Dartmoor National Park. Whether you have a passion for nature, history or simply love spending quality time outdoors with the family – there’s ample walks to explore, animals to spot and industrial heritage to discover.

Surrounded by steep sided banks and approximately 900 feet above sea level, Meldon Reservoir offers some of the most breath taking scenery that Dartmoor has to offer. There are a network of off-road footpaths, bridleways and old tracks that cross the valley.


This is a view from the bridleway on the northern side of Meldon Reservoir in Dartmoor National Park. Looking south towards Yes Tor and High Willhays. A truly magical place. I created a series of quick and detailed sketches of this view. 
The original drawing took approximately 60 hours to produce over a week. There are a number of techniques used to create this artwork.
