The Barnstaple Yeo is a tributary of the River Taw and rises east of Berry Down in north Devon. The river flows south then south west for approximately 18 km before its confluence with the River Taw estuary. There are at present three sites on the River Yeo that are routinely chemically monitored. Brockham Bridge (R30H001 at NGR SS 6034 4083) has a current River Ecosystem Use (RE) Class target of 2. However, it is being considered that in the future this target will be increased to an RE class of 1. In this study, the area concerned has been investigated to identify possible cause of poor water quality of the watercourse.
