    Armishaws Fun Facts

    Pie Wars

    Devon is actually the birth place of the pasty. The first written record of the region’s number one savoury snack attributes the pasty to Devon. Something their neighbours in Cornwall find hard to swallow.

    Sea-ing Is Believing

    Devon is the only county to have two separate seas. To the north the county opens on to the Bristol Channel and Irish Sea, to the south the beaches are kissed by the English Channel.

    It’s Officially Beautiful

    The county has three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty; Blackdown Hills, South Devon, East Devon. While not given AONB status, Dartmoor is the largest open space in the South of England covering and area of 368 sq miles.

    Road to Somewhere

    Not known for its packed motorways, Devon actually has more miles of road than any other county, 8,000 miles of blacktop to be precise. It also has the slowest roads of anywhere else, at peak hours Exeter has traffic speeds of just 4.6 miles an hour. That’s even slower than London!

    Devils & Witchcraft

    On the 5th of November, while the rest of the nation is celebrating Bonfire Night, the Devon village of Shebbear turns a giant stone to ward off devils. It takes six men to roll the giant stone and no one knows how the stone (not native to the area) got there. Devon was also the last county to put women on trial and execute them for witchcraft. Evidence against them included a tabby cat entering the shop of one of the accused and a magpie landing on the windowsill of another.

    Famous Faces

    Exeter University has some celebrated alumni, Steve Backshall, Zara Tindell, Rhod Gilbert, Will Young and JK Rowling drank knowledge and sipped cider in the halls and student union at Exeter.

    Flag Bearers

    Devon’s flag is actually relatively new. In 2003 BBC Radio Devon held a competition to design a flag for the county. The colours (green, black and white) represent the hills, the moors and the sea spray.

    About Devon

    A rural and in parts ruggedly beautiful place, Devon is one of England’s most spectacular counties. There are two coastlines, three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, two National Parks, one UNESCO World Heritage Site and the largest open space in Southern England. There is also a rich heritage of fine food, from cheese and pasties to wine and gin, whether you’re sitting in a rustic pub, tearoom or a 5* Michelin restaurant, there is much to enjoy. But perhaps Devon’s best loved aspect is the great outdoors, with a warmer climate and more roads than any other county (strange but true), there is much waiting to be explored for any household planning Devon removals.

    Population – 532,272 (2011 You.Gov census)

    Area – 6,707 km²

    Things to Do in Devon

    Paignton Zoo

    With 2,500 animals spread over 80 acres, this conservation zoo is part of the worldwide network helping to breed rare and endangered species. A top day out for all ages.

    World Of Country Life

    A day of fun for the family with a uniquely Devonian twist. Feed animals, soft play areas, duck racing, rides, museum, maze, there’s even a ninja warrior course if you’re feeling daring.

    Watersports

    Devon has many exhilarating watersports for newbies to experience; stand up paddle-boarding, coasteering, sea kayaking, sailing, deep sea fishing, powerboats and more.

    Plymouth Gin Distillery

    Learn the history, enjoy samples and learn how to make a drop of the old ‘mother’s ruin’. A great day where you can take your own gin home with you (plus there’s a cocktail bar!!).

    County News

    You can get informed about Devon past and present through a variety of websites including;

    With its romantic windswept moorland, history of smugglers, rugged coastline and beautiful scenery, it’s no wonder so many people move to Devon. If you’re considering making the county your home there is much to explore once you’ve completed your Devon removals.

    Featuring 300 miles of coast (Devon is the only county to have coastlines on two separate seas), this is most certainly a seafaring county. Sir Francis Drake and Sir Walter Raleigh both came from Devon, as did the pirates Henry ‘Long Ben’ Avery and Black Sam Bellamy.

    Devon is also well known for its rural heritage, the warm climate makes it the perfect place for producing a great many treats, fruit is widely grown and there are a number of excellent wine producers. And not forgetting cider! Devon was also the birthplace of the pasty and the cream tea debate (cream or jam first) is still fiercely disputed by the cafes and tearooms of Devon and Cornwall.

    It’s also incredibly scenic, home to the UK’s tallest cliffs and a Unesco World Heritage site, there are three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and miles of country lanes to explore, stopping off at pubs, castles, cafes and attractions as you journey through wonderful Devon.
