The still of the evening spreads across the vast reservoir whilst the golden light of the near setting sun falls upon the trees surrounding Wistleland Pound Reservoir, Devon.
Wistlandpound Reservoir is a reservoir in Devon, England owned by South West Water. Completed in 1956, the earth embankment reservoir holds up to 1,550 megalitres (341 million gallons) and covers an area of 40 acres. The construction of the reservoir flooded part of the formation of the Lynton and Barnstaple Railway, which can still be seen when water levels are low. Wistlandpound is a popular recreation area, with bird watching, trout fishing, as well as boating and nature walking among the most popular activities.
