Newton Abbot straddling the River Lemon, has been a market town since 1220. This lively, bustling town, offers the visitor a whole range of markets as well as historic buildings, lovely parks and a working malthouse! The town is located at the head of the Teign estuary, just south of Exeter. .

St Leonard's Tower

The centre of the town features the ancient tower of St Leonard. The tower is all that remains of the medieval church of St. Leonard, built in 1350 - the main chapel being demolished in 1836. Adjacent to the tower is a plaque; marking the spot where the first declaration of the newly arrived William III, Prince of Orange was read in 1688. William stayed overnight in the town, as he made his way from Brixham to London to assume the English throne.

There are two other buildings of note in the town. Forde House located in the south east corner of the town, was built with an 'E' shaped floor plan, by Sir Richard Reynell in 1610. King Charlres I stayed at the house in 1625 and William of Orange on his way to London.

Bradley Manor

At the opposite end of Newton Abbot is the National Trust run property, Bradley Manor. This is 13th century manor house in its own secluded woodland setting, with a notable great hall - emblazoned with the royal coat of Arms of Elizabeth I. In the woodland, close to the manor house you will find the 'Puritan Pit' - a natural hollow where non-conformists held their secret meetings to avoid persecution.

Tucker's Maltings

Close to the town centre is Tucker's Maltings. This is the only traditional malthouse in the country which is open to the public. The malthouse which offers the visitor hour long guided tours from the barley to beer discovery centre, produces enough malt to brew 15 million pints of beer each year.
