Dragon's Treasures


Photo Information
Afterglow and early twilight under a thin haze permeates into the O Brook on Dartmoor, with its décor of early autumnal leaves upon the moss festooned granite ledges.


It is said that in the medieval era that the valley of the O Brook was home to an infamous dragon.

Tin miners were fearsome of the place and many folk of the moors would detour this place by many miles. Farmers were said to have many animals over the years and it was reputed to have eaten a few weary travellers too.

It is said that at some point that the folk of the moors caught the dragon, bound him from head to claw and drew it to its doom in the River Dart in the main valley below.

Thanks very much David It is a place for sure that has a definite ancient ambiance and easy to imagine that it would make a great home for a dragon
