Raybarrow Pool, Devon


  • Located in Chagford, Devon, South West England, England
  • Avoid this area. Raybarrow Pool is a notoriously dangerous Dartmoor mire. We include Raybarrow Pool on PictureTheUK as a warning. If you're exploring this area of the National Park, stick to the track that's clearly marked on the Ordnance Survey Explorer OL28 'Dartmoor' map. On that map, you'll see this track running from White Moor Stone Circle to Cosdon (The Cemetery) Stone Row. The track itself is difficult going in places but make sure that you do not stray east into the Raybarrow Pool area
  • We've positioned Raybarrow Pool on Google maps so zoom in on the 'Satellite' setting to see its location. On that satellite imagery, you'll see why the area is so dangerous. The lines that look like tree roots are evidence of waterlogged ground. The ground moves like jelly until you slip through the surface. We've had the misfortune of getting stuck in other mires on Dartmoor and it's a seriously unpleasant experience. Again, avoid
