St Andrew's Church, Ashburton

St Andrew's Church, Ashburton Image

Ashburton is a small market town, lying on the southern edges of Dartmoor.  The town dates from Saxon times, and was known as a 'stannary town', meaning that from 1305 it was a centre for tin mining and coining. It was also a centre for wool production, with many water mills along the River Dart, which runs close to the town. The architecture ranges from the 15th century to the Edwardian and Victorian eras.

Today the town is a popular base for visitors from which to explore Dartmoor, and the South Devon coast, and eclectic shops in the town offer antiques, hand-made jewellery, original art & sculpture galleries, crafts, gifts, comics, and bookshops. There are many local walks, and Dartmoor is nearby for longer walks. Other outdoor activities include pony trekking, canoeing, fishing, and cycling.
