Some views of the River Hooke as it flows through the Kingcombe Meadows Nature Reserve. The water is clear and relatively shallow, running over a pebble bed, but habitat variation has been introduce by the installation of branch-work dams to occasionally slow the flow and provide deeper stretches to contrast with the riffle zones. This makes for greater biodiversity by increasing the habitat types for plants, invertebrates and fish. The pictures were taken along a designated walk with woodland on the right bank and Moor Field on the left.
