WELCOME TO THE TEDBURN ST MARY PARISH WEBSITE
The Your Tedburn group tell us that the Parish Plan is now nearly ready, and will be launched at Tedburn Village Hall on Sunday 9th June 2013, when there will be a cream tea and a performance from the Tedburn Community Choir. Every household in the Parish will then receive their own copy. Click here for a poster.
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.
Please click here for a map showing where we are.
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.
