NCA Profile:151 South Devon (NE338)

An updated version of this profile is online at This pdf is retained for historical and completeness purposes.

South Devon NCA is predominantly a plateau, dissected by steep valleys and rivers, most rising on the adjoining Dartmoor NCA. Towards the coast the often wooded valleys and rias are remote and hard to access from the land. The majority of the area consists of mixed farming, with fields flanked by Devon hedgebanks and narrow winding lanes. The south of the area contains many internationally important coastal and estuarine habitats.
