Many thanks to Wainsford Estate for facilitating this camera's location and to the Westcountry Rivers Trust for capitally funding its installation. The camera is located in the grounds of Wainsford Estate,  the river rises about 1-mile north-west of Brown Willy on Bodmin Moor, passes Lanhydrock House, Restormel Castle and Lostwithiel, then broadens at Milltown before joining the English Channel at Fowey. The river has seven tributaries, the largest being the River Lerryn. The section of the Fowey Valley between Doublebois and Bodmin Parkway railway station is known as the Glynn Valley. The catchment area of the River Fowey covers a total of 169.1 square kilometres (41,800 acres; 65.3 sq mi)[2] consisting of kaolinised granite on Bodmin Moor, Devonian slates and grits, and valley gravels. The upper reaches of the Fowey are mainly moorland giving way to woodland and farmland, predominantly livestock. This means that 63.6% of the catchment is grassland, with a further 18.3% woodland and 10.7% arable land. Of the remaining is urban or built-up areas, 2.5% is mountain, heath and bog and the remainder is inland waters.
