River Lowman

The River Lowman, a tributary of the River Exe, is one of Tiverton’s main waterways. Its name is derived from Celtic origins and is believed to mean “Elm River”.

Tiverton is actually sited on the confluence of the two aforementioned rivers. The Lowman, which has also been written as the Loman, has given its name to many areas in the town including Lowman Green, the site of the new Police Station and the Clock Tower, and the Lowman Park estate.
