Eylesbarrow watershed reave can be traced from Cadworthy Wood to Eylesbarrow, a distance of some 7.5 kilometres, separating the watershed of the River Plym from that of the River Meavy.
This part of the reave runs for approximately 300 meters through the enclosed Brisworthy Plantation and appears as a low grassy bank up to 2.5 meters in width and 0.5 meters in height. The beeches of the plantation grow on and beside the reave and there are short lengths where it is harder to discern due to tree-damage. To the north-east the reave is cut by a hollow way immediately outside the plantation enclosure, it then continues across Ringmoor Down; to the south-west it emerges alongside a track proceeding towards Wigford Down. Other details: SAM: 10669.
