Seaton is now a thriving sea-side town with a population of around 6500. Its size now, is probably not a true reflection on how important seaton has been over the millennia.
The sea has always been central to Seaton. From the earliest beginnings, in pre-Roman times, the Axe estuary, now long since silted up, would have provided the ideal port for traders crossing the channel. This continued through roman times. The fosseway starts in Seaton and the remains of a Roman Villa and Bath House are to be found here.
In Saxon times Seaton was know as Fleet. Fleet was founded as a medieval town in AD 1005 by Saxon Charter and is celebrating its 1000 years in 2005.

Seaton really began to grow as a seaside resort with the coming of the railway in 1868. Read more about the history of Seaton on the Seaton history page. » » »
