This National Rivers Authority (NRA) report describes the consultation report of the River Torridge Catchment Management Plan. The combined estuary of the Taw and Torridge is situated on the north coast of Devon and opens into Bideford Bay. The tidal rivers pass through the towns of Barnstaple (Taw) and Bideford (Torridge) before converging at Appledore and flowing to the sea. The extensive sand dunes of Braunton Burrows lie to the north of the mouth of the combined estuary with the seaside town of Westward Ho! lying to the south.
