River Tone is a river in Somerset, that flows through Taunton and joins the River Parrett.
The River Tone is about 21 miles (34 km) long. It rises at Beverton Pond near Huish Champflower in the Brendon Hills and flows through Curry and Hay Moors which are designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. At the end of its journey it joins up with the River Parrett at Burrowbridge. An Act of Parliament in 1699 authorised work that made the river navigable as far as Taunton.[1] The river was straightened in the 1960s to prevent future flooding of Taunton town.
