The Codroy Valley is a glacial valley formed in the Anguille Mountains, a sub-range of the Long Range Mountains which run along Newfoundland's west coast fronting the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The valley runs inland at a perpendicular angle from the coast along a bearing of 45° (northeast), carrying the Codroy River and its tributaries to the gulf.
The mouth of the Codroy Valley at the coast is extremely windy and is the location of Wreckhouse, so-named by employees of the historic Newfoundland Railway for the wind's ability to blow railway cars off the tracks.
