THE RIVER TAVY FISHERY: from DOMESDAY to MODERN DAY By Sharon Gedge

Talk  |  Seated

SHARON GEDGE: Former Physical Geography academic who used to lecture about past environmental change and hydrology. In recent years she has developed her passion for walking and landscape research, writing about West Devon and Dartmoor landscapes on her blog ‘A Walk in English Weather’, and also sharing her landscape stories through talks to local heritage groups

TALK: This talk examines the historic fishery of the Tavy, from its first mention in Domesday Book to it becoming a leisure angling river in the modern age. It delves into the control and operation of the fishery by people like the earls of Devon, monastic estates and famous local figures like Sir Francis Drake. The talk also showcases the frequent conflict between neighbours over the sought-after fishery resource.
