The Moors River is a river in east Dorset, England, which starts at the point where the River Crane and the Ebblake Stream meet, at Ebblake, south of Verwood.[1]

It runs south then southeast, past Bournemouth International Airport and Hurn to join the River Stour at Blackwater, Dorset.

It is well-known to dragonfly enthusiasts as the last site in Britain where Orange-spotted Emerald occurred.[2]
