The Book of North Tawton
The Book of North Tawton
  • Description

North Tawton is a small town located right in the heart of the Devonshire countryside. Situated alongside the river Taw from which it takes its name, it is arguably the smallest town in the county.

Dartmoor, only a few miles away, provides a dramatic backdrop to an ancient settlement whose history began before the Romans established a fortification and continued through the heyday of the wool trade, to which North Tawton owes its early prosperity.

Although agriculture has played an important part in shaping the history of the town, it also enjoys a long industrial tradition. Its central position meant that it was a natural site for marketing the produce from its hinterland which it did successfully for more than 500 years.
