Property description

The River Barle
Rises some 450 metres above sea level, within an area known as “The Chains” on the North West plateau of Exmoor. In the 1800s the Barle was dammed at its source (Pinkery Pond) by the industrialist John Knight, to create a reservoir. The river flows south and then east to Simonsbath and Withypool collecting additional flow from the lesser known “Barle Water”, “White Water”, “Sherdon Water” and “Pennycombe Water” tributaries. From Withypool the river flows south east to Dulverton, passing through the historically renowned Tarr Steps (with its ancient stone “Clapper Bridge”) and picks up further flow along the way from “West Water”, “Little River” and “Danes Brook”. Ultimately the river then passes through the fishing rights presently for sale, shortly after which it joins the River Exe at Exebridge. Exmoor is a sparsely wooded with steep sided “V” shaped valleys which broaden at Dulverton and south towards Exebridge.

The Beat
Whilst only a small beat, the 213 yards on the north eastern bank of the River Barle straddles the well-known Beasley Salmon Trap/Weir, just on the edge of Dulverton. Ideal for those seeking a productive but cost effective stretch of fishing on one of the areas premium Rivers (Salmon and Brown Trout).

Tenure and Possession
The rights are for the sale and exclusive right of fishing and taking further fish together with the right to trim the banks, trees and bushes overhanging the river, to cut weeds and make pools for the purposes of such fishing rights.
