"Source of the River Fowey" Camelford Things to Do Tip by Geoff_Wright

  River Fowey
by Geoff_Wright

The majestic Rover Fowey (pronounced like 'Foy') has its source high up on Bodmin Moor. I have walked to the actual 'source', which is really nothing more than a largish peaty bog, oozing with dark brown water, where the sheep and cattle graze and do everything else in the murky water here!

A mile or so farther downstream (if you can call it a stream), the stream very quickly becomes a small river, as it is fed by numerous smaller streams, and rather larger peat bogs.
