River Camel, Cornwall

The River Camel flows through the county of Cornwall in England. The river rises from the edge of Bodmin Moor and combines with many tributaries. The river is around 30 miles long and issues into the Celtic Sea between Pentire Point and Stepper Point. The winding course of the river gives it the name Camel, which means ‘the crooked one’ in the ancient Cornish language. The river is tidal up to Egloshayle and is a popular for leisure activities such as sailing, fishing and birdwatching. The wide estuary forms Padstow Bay and the fishing port of Padstow stands on the eastern bank. Polzeath is situated on the inner shore of the estuary.
