The Lynher catchment includes the rivers Lynher and Tiddy, and small streams discharging to Plymouth Sound. The River Lynher rises on Bodmin Moor and flows south east, and is joined by small tributaries such as Withey Brook, which is an important source of public water supply. It meets the estuary at Notter Bridge. The River Tiddy rises on moorland near Pensilva, and flows south along a steep sided valley to the estuary at Tideford. Historic metal mining has left a legacy of abandoned mines and spoil tips in the catchment. The major urban centres are Callington, Saltash and Torpoint.
