Photographer's Note

A favourite walk for us, is a walk around the grounds of Saltram house, a National Trust property on the outskirts of Plymouth.

Situated on a hill, one of the paths is on a ridge that enables views such as this.
We are looking down on the Plym estuary.

The River Plym runs from Dartmoor in the centre of the county of Devon, south-west towards Plymouth Sound.
This view shows the tidal part,which shortly leads to Cattewater, which is navigable. It is approximately 20 miles long, quite short when we consider many rivers.

The name Plym is thought to have its origins in Old English and means the 'plum tree', from a back formation from the name of Plympton.
Plymouth took its name from the river.

A muddy estuary, at low tide there are many birds to be seen feeding here.

Thanks for looking.
