The River Teign is an impressive 30miles long and winds its way down from Dartmoor to the sea at Teignmouth.

The river flows down a steep sided valley and meanders southwards at the east edge of Dartmoor. It is a diverse waterway and is popular with many species of birds which can be spoted along the mudflats along with an array of wildlife. Bird life often includes Herons, Kingfishers, Dippers, Grey Wagtails and Mallards, you may even spot the odd Otter!

The further along the Teign you walk the more life you can expect to see. With Salmon dancing and leaping at Drewe's Weir where you can also see dragonflies and rare water beetles.
Look out for the tree lined areas of the Teign as this is where plantlife is at it's best - bluebells, daffodiles and variety of flora and fauna are an impressive Spring time sight.
