River Walkham, Devon


  • Located in Devon, South West England, England
  • The River Walkham rises on the high moors of Dartmoor National Park's north plateau. Fur Tor, the most remote spot in southern England, is to the north east. The impressive Great Mis Tor is to the south. The Cowsic Head, South Tavy Head and West Dart Head are in the local area. Clearly, this is an isolated, boggy part of Dartmoor
  • From the high moors, the River Walkham flows past Vixen Tor and King's Tor before turning west to Horrabridge where it flows under Gem Bridge to meet the River Tavy
  • 'Gem Bridge spans the steep sides of the valley cut by the River Walkham as it flows down from Dartmoor to join the River Tavy at Double Waters. The river and woodlands form a network of natural and semi-natural habitats for wildlife, and this area lies within Dartmoor National Park.' (Source: information board at Gem Bridge)
  • Other rivers in this section of Dartmoor National Park include the River Plym, River Meavy, River Tavy and River Lyd
