Confluence of the Lynher River and River Tamar
Confluence of the Lynher River and River Tamar
River Tamar
The Tamar (Cornish: Dowr Tamar) is in south west England, it forms most of the border between Devon and Cornwall.
The Tamar's source is 3 miles from the north Cornish coast, but it flows southward and its course runs across the peninsula to the south coast. The total length of the river is 61 miles. At its mouth, the Tamar flows into the Hamoaze before entering Plymouth Sound. Tributaries of the river include the rivers Inny, Ottery, Kensey and Lynher (or St Germans River) on the Cornish side, and the Deer and Tavy on the Devon side.
River Lynher
The River Lynher (Cornish: Linar) (or St Germans River downstream from its confluence with the Tiddy) flows through east Cornwall, and enters the River Tamar at the Hamoaze, which in turn flows into Plymouth Sound. The river rises on Bodmin Moor and flows 21 miles.
