River Avon, Devon

For other rivers named Avon, see River Avon (disambiguation).

The River Avon, also known as the River Aune, is a river in the county of Devon in the south of England. It rises in the southern half of Dartmoor National Park in an area of bog to the west of Ryder's Hill. Close to where the river leaves Dartmoor a dam was built in 1957 to form the Avon reservoir (see Dartmoor reservoirs). After leaving the moor it passes through South Brent and then Avonwick and Aveton Gifford and flows into the sea at Bigbury on Sea. The estuary lies within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is part of the South Devon Heritage Coast.[1]
