Author: National Rivers Authority South West Region
Document Type: Monograph
The Bovey is an upland and rural river in south Devon, It rises near Water Hill on Dartmoor at a height of 420m, flowing first north then east, then south east from North Bovey through Bovey Tracey to join the River Teign just south of Chudleigh Knighton. The Teign continues through Newton Abbott to enter the sea at Teignmouth. The geological structure of the upper catchment area on Dartmoor is igneous granite. In the upstream sections surveyed, the Bovey displays the characteristics of an upland river, flowing in a narrow, often rocky channel, steeply graded with rapids and small waterfalls, through a steep-sided well-wooded valley.
