Many thanks to Clinton Estates for facilitating the camera's location  and to the Westcountry Rivers Trust & The River Torridge Association for capitally funding its installation. The River Torridge is a river in Devon. It was the home of Tarka the Otter in Henry Williamson's book. The Torridge local government district is named after the river. The river rises close to the border with Cornwall (north of the source of the River Tamar. It flows generally east, passing between East Putford and West Putford, and near Bradford it is joined by the River Waldon, then heads east past Black Torrington and Sheepwash. It is joined by the River Lew near Hatherleigh, and then by the River Okement near Meeth.

It then flows northwards, picking up the River Mere south of Beaford. After this it makes tight bends, and goes past Little Torrington and Great Torrington heading generally north-west. It is joined by the River Yeo at Pillmouth, and then becomes estuarine by Bideford. Between Appledore and Instow it joins the estuary of the River Taw.
