Many thanks to The Taw Valley Garage for facilitating this camera's location and to The Westcountry Rivers Trust and The River Taw Fisheries Association for capitally funding its installation. The River Taw rises at Taw Head, a spring on the central northern flanks of Dartmoor. It reaches the Bristol Channel 45 miles away on the north coast of Devon at a joint estuary mouth which it shares with the River Torridge. The river picks up headwaters from a number of tributaries, including the Lapford Yeo, the Little Dart River and the River Mole, which rises on Devon's other upland area, Exmoor. The Taw's salmon and sea trout fishing gives the river its reputation, although there is good brown trout fishing, especially on the upper reaches of the system.
