Colyton’s circular street arrangement is typically Saxon. Take a stroll along the winding lanes and you will see a wealth of historical buildings. Market Place features a variety of independent shops, and Colyton’s Inns are renowned for their hospitality. A short walk will take you to the Colyton Tram Station, where you can ride the tram alongside the River Axe wetlands to Seaton. The pretty villages of Colyford, Southleigh, Northleigh and Farway lie nestled in the heart of the Coly Valley, set in East Devon’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Some of Colyton and the Coly Valley’s forthcoming events.
Have you noticed these spectacular heraldic banners gradually appearing around Colyton? It is all part of the Promote Colyton Group’s venture for Summer 2016. There is a group of dedicated volunteers who are meeting regularly at St John’s Hall to paint the banners which will be displayed in all their glory this Summer. On 1 June 2016, there will be a Heraldic Market held in Market Square with the banners fluttering overhead. Yet another great event for Colyton.
