River Okement


River Okement

The River Okement is a tributary of the River Torridge in Devon, England.

It rises at two places in Dartmoor, as the West Okementand the East Okement.

These meet with other minor streams and join together at Okehampton. The river flows generally north, past the villages of Jacobstowe and Monkokehampton, and has its confluence with the River Torridge near Meeth.
