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 pubs are renowned for their hospitality.
St Andrews Church is located in the centre of the town. A very unusual octagonal lantern tower sits on top of the 12th century tower containing eight bells. On top of the lantern is a large copper weathercock that can be seen for miles around. The 14th-16th century main building and later aisles contain many historical features making the church well worth a visit. It is built from Beer stone still quarried locally. You can visit the Beer quarry caves and will hear the interesting social history of the stone masons and quarrymen.
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.
Colyton is ideally located for enjoying the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Gateway at Seaton.
