Located in the valley of the River Taw, Bishop's Tawton is a small attractive village south of Barnstaple, North Devon. Surrounded by large areas of agricultural land and woodland, the village is home to over 1200 people yet retains the rural character found throughout many similar villages in the South West.
Bishop's Tawton has a 14th century church - one of only a few in Devon with a medieval spire - and was formerly a residence of the Bishop of Exeter. The remains of the bishops palace still exist within part of the farmhouse next to the church. The village has two thriving pubs, a village hall, a butchers and a number of small local businesses.
This community website has been created entirely by volunteers to keep local people informed of important events taking place in the village. If you have news, a local business or an upcoming event that you would to see publicised on this site, please contact us.
