Teign Estuary and Hackney Marsh
The estuary runs from Newton Abbot to Teignmouth. In the area of South Devon known as Teignbridge. The Estuary proper starts at the A380 flyover across the top of the estuary, and flows down to its mouth at Teignmouth/Shaldon.
The north bank has a railway running along it's length, but the south bank is accessible for most of it's length on footpaths, but can also be walked at low tide on the foreshore.
From a hotel/inn near the flyover (Passage House) you can also walk up river into the Hackney Marsh NNR.
