  • Description

Woodbury Parish, which incorporates the villages of Woodbury, Woodbury Salterton and Exton, is currently one of the largest parishes in Devon. It encompasses much of Woodbury Common an area of outstanding natural beauty and enjoys a thriving community spirit rooted in the church and chapel, in the school and in agriculture.

In days of old, the parish was frequented by Sir Francis Drake and a chapel dedicated to the memory of the Drake Family is situated in St. Swithun's Church.

The 400 images that appear on these pages are just a selection taken from the 1200 old photographs of the parish acquired by the author. The pictures, which date back as far as 1860, remind us that through an era of change, the past is linked to the present through the generations of families that have made Woodbury their home. Press cuttings and the reminiscences of older residents have also helped provide a unique insight into the changing face of life in the parish.
