Fernworthy Reservoir is situated near the small town of Chagford on the north eastern edge of Dartmoor. It is home to a wide variety of birds and wildlife with a circular waterside walk of about three miles plus many other marked trails through the surrounding forest. There is a Special Protection Zone on the south western arm of the lake which has two bird hides which visitors can use. Amongst the trees there are many standing stones and circles including a fine Bronze Age circle of 27 granite slabs and blocks standing in a clearing about half a mile west of Fernworthy reservoir. If you walk a little further through the forest onto the open moor you can visit the famous Grey Wethers Stone Circles.
