Seaton is a seaside town in East Devon on the south coast of
England. It faces onto Lyme Bay, to the west of the mouth of the
River Axe with red cliffs to one side and white cliffs on the other.
Axmouth and Beer are nearby. A sea wall provides access to the
mostly shingle beach stretching for about a mile, and a smallharbour.
Seaton sits on the 96-mile (155 km) long Dorset and East Devon Coast
World Heritage Site, more commonly known as the Jurassic Coast. From
here it is possible to visit rock strata dating from three
geological periods in a 185 million-year ‘geological walk through
A farming community existed here 4,000 years before the Romans
arrived and there were Iron Age forts in the vicinity at Seaton
Down, Hawkesdown Hill, Blackbury Camp and Berry Camp. During Roman
times this was an important port although the town's Roman remains
have been reburied to preserve them. In Saxon times Seaton was known
as Fluta or Fleet, the Saxon word for creek. The town of Fleet was
founded by Saxon Charter 1005 AD. The first mention of Seaton was in
a Papal Bull by Pope Eugenius in 1146.
