River Exe and Estuary, Exeter, South Devon

From Exmoor National Park to the South Devon coast

Rising on the high moors of Exmoor National Park north west of Simonsbath, the River Exe arcs south east towards the Dulverton area on the fringe of the Park before flowing south through Tiverton to Exeter. From there, the river runs into the Exe Estuary and the English Channel at Exmouth.

The Exe Estuary is a Site of Special Scientific Interest. 'The mudflats, sandbanks and marshland of the Estuary are of international importance and provide valuable habitats for thousands of birds and other wildlife.' (Source: information board on site)
