Author: National Rivers Authority South West Region
Document Type: Monograph
The Lemon is a lowland river in south Devon. It rises on Haytor Down at a height of about 400m above sea level, and runs south and east to Newton Abbot where it joins the River Teign. The-Lemon has several small tributaries including Kester Brook and Blackford Brook. The surveying technique carried out on the River Lemon is based closely on that set out in the Nature Conservancy Council (NCC) publication Surveys of Wildlife in River Corridors - Draft Methodology (1985) and the Torridge Corridor Survey produced by the Devon Wildlfe Trust (1990). Essentially, the method involves dividing the river into 500 metre lengths which are then assessed in detail for their value to wildlife.
