Red-a-ven Brook

Red-a-ven Brook

The origins of Red-a-ven Brook can be found in a small mire nestled east of High Willhays, Dartmoor’s nighest point. Its course heads north between Yes Tor and West Mill Tor, dropping sharply through Redaven Dip, before turning west to meet the West Okement in the disused quarries below Meldon Dam.

With a length of only 4.3km, it is one of the best open moor rivers to walk comfortably in a day. You join me on a blustery day at Red-a-ven Head.

It was filmed using a Sony ZV-1 between 12th-14th March 2022.
