Yealm Estuary image

The River Yealm rises 430 metres above sea level on the Stall Moor mires of south Dartmoor and makes its 15 mile journey to the sea passing through Cornwood, Lee Mill and Yealmpton before reaching the estuary mouth just below Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo.

The estuary of the Yealm is tidal up as far as Puslinch, 4 miles inland. Like the other estuaries of South Devon the original deep river valley has been inundated by later sea level rise, with the tide flooding in to create a wide expanse of water.
