River Seaton

Rivers south of Bodmin Moor
The River Seaton, Hessenford

The River Seaton is a river in east Cornwall, England, UK which flows southwards into the English Channel.

The river rises near Caradon Hill and flows generally south past Darite, Menheniot and Hessenford and a few miles farther south into the sea at Seaton Beach, west of Downderry.[1]

There is an early record of the river as "Seythyn" in 1302; the name means "little arrow river".[2]
