Horner Water

The River Horner also known as Horner Water is a continuation of the waters of Chetsford Water, Nutscale Reservoir and Nutscale Water and starts its life at Pool bridge in Horner Woods. Horner Woods is one of the largest and most beautiful ancient oak woods in Britain, a National Nature Reserve nestled on the Holnicote Estate and become one of woodlands of the “Queen’s Green Canopy” dedicated to the Queen at the Platinum Jubilee in 2022. It flows in a generally northerly direction through Horner Wood and on the west side of Horner Hill where it is joined by East Water before reaching Horner and West Luccombe. It continues on beneath New Bridge and flows through Breakneck Woods to reach Bossington. At Bossington it is joined by the river Aller before reaching Bossingto Beach where it flows into Porlock Bay near Hurlestone point on the Bristol Channel.

From Pool bridge the river flows for a distance of 8.5 kilometres to reach the sea at Bossington Beach and from the Chetsford Water source it 15 Kilometres.
