This reservoir holds 3020 million litres of water which supplies homes throughout mid Devon (England). We need water to live which is a form of Sustenance.

Meldon is surrounded by the distinct Dartmoor countryside and provides an ideal starting point for moorland walks.

Near Okehampton Meldon Reservoir lies at nearly 900 ft above sea level. The banks are steep sided; therefore access is not possible around the lake perimeter. However, there are plenty of walks on the moor overlooking the water.

By crossing the dam which was completed in 1972, visitors can enjoy views of the water spanning the West Okement Valley and Meldon Viaduct can be seen on the north western edge of Dartmoor.
