For most of its length the River Tamar marks the boundary between Cornwall on this side and Devon on the other. There was once a ferry here that took people (and then cars) across the river from Saltash to St Budeaux on the outskirts of Plymouth, but this was replaced by the large suspension bridge (out of shot to the left) in the early 1960s. Saltash was developed by the Normans and at one time was the only franchised seaport between Dartmouth and Fowey, long before Plymouth became established.

Wadenhoe is a delightful village in the Nene Valley between Thrapston and Oundle. The watermill is one of dozens which used to take their power from the River Nene, but virtually all have now been destroyed. A mill is mentioned at Wadenhoe in the Domesday Book. The Grade II-listed building is now a private house. It has medieval origins but mainly dates from the mid-late 1700s. In 1838 an additional storey was built on top and the roof raised.

This broad expanse of water to the north of the Tamar bridges at Saltash is where the Rivers Tamar and Tavy come together. The Tamar provides the border between Cornwall and Devon, which can be seen in the distance, along with part of Dartmoor. This sheltered anchorage is extremely popular with yachtsmen and small boat owners.

This ford across the River Meavy in the south-west of Dartmoor saves large vehicles from having to negotiate a very narrow stone bridge. This is adjacent to the pretty little village of Meavy, from which the river takes its name. The river is just a few miles in length and rises on Dartmoor near Princetown before joining the River Plym near Shaugh Prior. It provides a source for the Burrator Reservoir.
