River Exe

The River Exe is a river in the county of Devon in England. It usually flows directly south through the city of Exeter. The island had many mills making paper and textiles, and also created valuable land by draining the marshlands.[needs to be explained] The wide estuary of the River Exe is a ria (drowned river valley).

The name of the city of Exeter means "castle on the river Exe".
