The Book of Ivybridge
The Book of Ivybridge
  • Description

Few places can boast a trout and salmon river running through their centre, but it is to the River Erme that Ivybridge owes its very existence, and because of the ancient bridge, its name. The river once powered a corn mill and paper mill, along with a fulling and tucking mill. The mills are largely silent now, save for a specialist paper mill, but the town has continued to grow.

Through the use of over 250 photographs, many of them never before published, this book traces the history of Ivybridge from its position as a simple crossing point on the turbulent moorland river, through its rise when Wool was King in Devon, down to more recent times.

To tell the story of Ivybridge, which grew up in the 1800s, you also have to include its fourmore ancient neighbouring parishes, Cornwood, Harford, Ermington and Ugborough. These were the principal communities when Ivybridge was just the ivy-covered packhorse bridge.

For anyone who lives in the town, or who has family connections to Ivybridge, this book will prove of great interest and enjoyment.
