Bend of the River Teign northwest of Southacre quarry
The view across the river is of a bund on the east side of the Newbridge ball clay quarry. While not a true reverse view it gives some idea of the terrain in SX8476 : Track to Twinyeo Farm.
The River Teign
From the Bovey Basin Strategy, 5.26: Devon County Council, 2001 (with some extra punctuation).
"The study area [the Bovey Basin] forms part of the relatively wide flat river basin of the Teign, which contrasts sharply with the Teign's steeply-graded upper catchments on Dartmoor. The contrasting sediment-carrying characteristics of the two reaches of the catchment, and flash-flooding associated with steeply-graded poorly-vegetated catchments create dynamic geomorphological conditions. Evidence of scour, lateral shifting and sedimentation are apparent on the majority of upper river reaches in the study area."
