The Environment Agency has installed Webcams on the River Exe at Thorverton Gauging Station for the purpose of flood warning monitoring and to give recreational users such as canoeists and anglers an indication of current conditions. Wildlife including herons, kingfishers and fish can also sometimes be seen. This page refreshes automatically after every 5 minutes (or press F5 to update). Twenty-four hour viewing is possible due to infra-red lighting. Please note that there is no public access at the gauging station site at Thorverton (private property).
