Eylesbarrow watershed reave can be traced from Cadworthy Wood to Eylesbarrow, a distance of some 7.5 kilometres, separating the watershed of the Plym from that of the Meavy.
This part of the reave runs up the slope of Eylesbarrow from the stream north of Scout Hut at its south-western end to streamworkings which truncate its north-eastern end, a total distance of some 1.05 kilometres. The reave consists of a bank of earth and stone up to 3.0 meters in width and 0.5 meters in height and was the terminal reave for Roughtor parallel reave and another parallel reave. Although it abuts these two reaves, for purposes of clarity and because they are different reave forms, these three reaves have been defined as separate schedulings. Other details: SAM: 10743.
