Catchment: A drainage basin, or the area drained by a particular river system. Adjacent drainage basins are separated by watersheds. In North America, the term watershed refers to the entire drainage basin
, and the height of land between basins referred to as a divide.http://www.patp3.webbler.co.uk/section.php?se...Watershed

Large masses of Dartmoor rise 1,500 feet above the sea and much of it is over 1,700; at several points it exceeds 1,900 feet, but the only tors reaching 2,000 happen to lie just beyond our border. The highest points within the map described in this Memoir are Cut Hill, which reaches 1,981 feet, and Whitehorse Hill, which rises to 1,974 feet. These two hills, two miles apart, represent the watershed
and central area, from which the rivers radiate north, south, east, and west; the somewhat higher tors further north are not on the watershed. This central and northern area is also the wettest and most peaty part of Dartmoor, for it has an annual rainfall of about 60 inches. All the land above 1,600 feet rises into the region of clouds; so that not only has it an exceptionally heavy rainfall, but the constant mists and slight evaporation tend to make it a far more efficient feeder of the streams than its area alone would suggest.http://www.soton.ac.uk/~imw/Haytor-Dartmoor.htm
