- River Wolf
The River Wolf is a minor river in the west of the county of
Devonin England. Its name may come from a Celtic or earlier name recorded by the Roman map-maker Ptolemy(Ptolemy II 3 13) as Ουολιβα (Voliba)Fact|date=July 2008 as a town of the Dumnonii(it may be Broadbury Castle); rather than referring to the wolfanimal.
The river runs from
Broadburythrough the valley below Germansweekand empties into Roadford Lake, a man-made reservoir built in 1989. In July 2006 some 100 million litres of water were released from the lake to help the survival of salmon in the river during a prolonged period of drought. [cite web
