River Bray near Meethe

The River Bray is a small river in North Devon, England. It is a tributary of the River Mole, which in turn is a tributary of the River Taw.[1] It rises in Exmoor, near the border with Somerset.

Geology[edit]

Generally, the River is quite shallow,[2] but it can be prone to flooding. In the Lynmouth Flood, the River Bray was affected by the unseasonably high rainfall, and burst its banks, killing a group of schoolboy campers at Filleigh.

Villages[edit]

Several villages, such as Brayford,[2] have had their name given from the River Bray.
