Blackaton Brook, Devon


  • Located in Throwleigh, Devon, South West England, England
  • Blackaton Brook is a stream in the northern section of Dartmoor National Park that runs down from Raybarrow Pool past Throwleigh Common to the Throwleigh area and beyond. We include Blackaton Brook on PictureTheUK as the small valley at Shilley Pool is particularly beautiful. It's also a crossing place for a path that leads up to Cosdon (The Cemetery) Stone Row and Cosdon Beacon and Hill. There are signposts and gates marked 'public bridleway' to show the way. Be very careful when crossing Blackaton Brook in this small valley as some of the rocks upon which you step get submerged by water which makes them slippery. Browse our 'Photo Gallery' to see more. Note that you can cross Blackaton Brook in other places further up the moors from this small valley. These higher crossing places are best accessed across Throwleigh Common from Shilstone Tor
