hide/show OS map  

Site name: River Ter SSSI

Grid reference: TL 744 155 to TL 733 157

Brief description of site:

This reach of the River Ter is representative of a lowland stream with a distinctive flood regime. It is flashy, draining a low-lying catchment on glacial till, and has a very low base flow discharge but high flood peaks; daily, monthly and annual flow variability are also high.

In addition the site demonstrates characteristic features of a lowland stream including pool-riffle sequences, bank erosion, bedload transport and dimensional adjustments to flooding frequency.
