‘The Ham’ is a long narrow parcel of land (judged to be ham shaped, hence its name) which is situated at the eastern end of Sidmouth, by the mouth of the river Sid.
Sidmouth Town Council’s trusteeship starts at the west just behind the brick paved roof of SWW’s tank and northwards to a narrow point at the end of Riverside. The area of trusteeship includes the Fishermen’s Sheds, children’s play area and the former boating lake/macerator.
The area is provided for public and community use and recreation.
