 River Tamar - Southdown Quay, Millbrook  East: 243695  North: 52661  Lynda Ashwell - Residential Boat Owner  I'm not sure exactly how long my husband and I have been here. If I'm happy somewhere, years don't come into it. When you are content, you don't think about it. I feel that I may have the kind of life that people dream about.  Its a bit ramshackle, but this is where I really want to be. Its a beautiful setting where you can watch the deer, the egrets, the swans and the herons. Its an ever changing landscape that is like a painting. I'm a water sign and have never been far from the water.  I am at home here, love being here, feel that I was pulled here.  The river allows you to absorb its calmness, enables you to reflect, helps you to discover peace. The river gives life and it takes life.  It doesn't make any rules, it just flows.

 River Tamar - Mendennick Barton, Millbrook  East: 242002  North: 53701  David Turner - Landowner and Farmer  There is a direct family connection to this land since 1597 and I myself was born and bred here. The central farm itself is around 450 acres but I have additional responsibility for estates on Maker, Anthony and Port Eliot which together totals over 1600 acres. You are conscious that there is a lot of history around here, with some settlements dating from the Iron Age. I feel that I am just passing through this land, hoping to improve it's condition, make the farm more up-to-date and leave a positive legacy which my son can carry forward.  To me the river represents a very convenient space between here and Plymouth.  It is a barrier to development and in that sense a force for good.  The estuary adjacent to my land is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and that has been very beneficial in establishing my organic business as an example of Higher Level Stewardship*.  In that sense, the river has helped me again and I'm thankful for that.  *The primary objectives of Higher Level Stewardship are the conservation of wildlife; the maintenance and enhancement of landscape quality and character; the protection of natural resources; the protection of the historic environment; the promotion of public access and understanding of the countryside.

 River Tamar - Garden Battery - Cornwall  Colbey Short (Aged 13)  I've been coming to this spot for over a year. The city is boring. I need to escape it. I feel drawn to the water and spend a lot of time by the river. There is no one around here, no one tombstoning. Its quiet. Most of my mates are sat at home on their X-Boxes. I like to come here by myself and explore at low tide. I like the freedom and the space. It helps me relax.  East: 245653 North: 53232

I find the river soft, quiet, calming and healing.  I enjoy the scenery, the space, the different weathers and the constantly changing view - it can be quite gripping. I love the freedom that this lifestyle gives me and I love this spot. I feel drawn to the water and it is ever present here. You develop your own sense of time. You could easily get lost.
