Tedburn St Mary Oil Club


Tedburn St Mary is not supplied with mains gas so heating our homes can be a tricky and sometimes expensive business but there are ways of cutting this cost and at the same time being kinder to the environment.


The Tedburn Oil-Club is an independent group of approximately 55 members and has no links to any of our suppliers. Our aim is simple – reduce the cost on our wallets and the environment as much as we can. The savings you can achieve vary depending on the time of the year you place your order and how often you order.


If you are a Tedburn St Mary resident looking to save on fuel costs then please get in touch with Mr. Clive Barnett on 01647 61929 or email c.stuart.barnett@talk21.com.


Please note that the Oil Club has no connections with oil-club.co.uk.




Tedburn St Mary, with a population of approximately 1500, lies in stunning countryside, 7.5 miles west of Exeter, just off the A30 on the way to Okehampton.

There is a wide mixture of housing in the parish, from traditional thatched cottages to modern housing developments, mobile home developments at Pathfinder Village and Woodlands, and a sheltered housing scheme for the older generation who wish to remain in the village.

We have a Village School, two Churches and two pubs, and a large number of businesses and sports and social organisations.

The original village was situated in and around the Parish Church of Saint Mary (dating from the thirteenth century). What we now consider to be the centre of the village was known as 'Taphouse', referring to an inn at the crossroads where the Crediton and Exeter roads meet, and it was Taphouse which eventually came to be called Tedburn St Mary.

The village has always been an important staging post between London and Cornwall, and we are particularly proud of the fact that the messenger who brought the news of the victory at the Battle of Trafalgar stopped off en route from Falmouth to London at the Kings Arms .

The Parish of Tedburn St Mary includes the village of Tedburn St Mary and Pathfinder Village. For more information about Pathfinder, please click here.

We hope that you will discover the strong sense of community that exists in our village, and we hope that your time here, be it short or long-term, is enjoyable as possible.
