Tiverton

Tiverton is set on the Exe and Lowman rivers in a circular layout, now jealously guarded by the planners. Best known for John Heathcoat who set up his 19th Century textile factory with a few wool frames after escaping the luddites in Loughborough, the industry prospered and he built nearby Knighthayes Court as his mansion - now open to visitors with the National Trust. Tiverton Castle is in the centre of the town.

Historic market town with some very interesting buildings - venerable Tiverton Castle, magnificent St. Peter`s Church, three medieval almshouses, Old Blundells, Tiverton Museum of Mid Devon Life, baroque St. George`s Church. A great base for a holiday as such easy motoring access to Dartmoor, Exmoor, North and South coast beaches, Exeter. Good restaurants in the town, and excellent pubs in local villages.
