The Camel Estuary, The Doom Bar


The River Camel is a river in Cornwall and rises on the edge of Bodmin Moor. With its tributaries the catchment area covers much of North Cornwall. The river flows into the eastern Celtic Sea between Stepper Point and Pentire Point after covering about 30 miles. It is the second longest river wholly in Cornwall.


The river is tidal upstream to Egloshayle and is popular for sailing, birdwatching and fishing. The name Camel comes from the Cornish language for 'the crooked one', a reference to its winding course. My miniature shows the famous Doom Bar a feature of the Eastury and River.
