River Torridge, Devon

River Torridge
The River Torridge runs through the county of Devon in the south west of England. The river’s source is at Baxworthy cross in Devon, near Hartland in the north western corner of the county. The Torridge rises very close to the boundary with Cornwall . The river runs for 48 miles as it winds its way to the Taw estuary where it issues into the Bristol Channel . The main tributaries of the Torridge are the River Lew, which joins near Hatherleigh , and the River Okement which it meets near Meeth. Part of the Tarka Trail follows a section of the river. The Tarka Trail is a walking and cycling route featuring the rivers in Henry Williamson’s novel Tarka the Otter.
