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 section of the reave runs down the slope of Eylesbarrow for some 130 meters and consists of a bank of earth and stone up to 5.0 meters in width and 0.75 meters in height. It is separated from further sections on either side by gaps in which it is not traceable. Other details: SAM: 10741.
