Bow Creek is a tidal reach between Totnes & Dartmouth, where the Harbourne river meets the river Dart. Along its banks is the village of Tuckenhay and the Malsters Inn, formerly Floyds Inn, then owned by flamboyant TV chef Kieth Floyd. Whilst the pub can be busy in the summer months, Bow Creek remains a tranquil and beautiful spot to visit. The river is a hugely productive environment and supports a variety of wildlife species. Herons, little egrets, cormorants and kingfishers can be seen, and seals regularly pop up to check out passing boats.
Stead has painted Bow Creek and the Dart many times, indeed he and wife Becky lived by its banks for several years and it remains a place where they visit frequently for work and pleasure.
