The South Devon Rivers region runs from Wembury to Seaton with a focus on the tidal reaches of the Rivers Exe, Teign and Dart. Between 2019 - 2020 we collaborated with local groups to record and better understand the wide range of archaeological features, including abandoned boats and barges, the remains of coastal industries and lost prehistoric landscapes.
