The parish of Cornwood is situated in the South Hams and is bisected by the Dartmoor National Park boundary, with the village of Lutton just outside and the village of Cornwood just inside the park.  The hamlet of Corntown is also in the parish along with those of Fardel, Tor and Yeo plus several large country estates.  With a current population of around 1000, the villages grew up around agriculture and the nearby mines.

 

The parish has a primary school and pre-school, St Michael and All Angels church, 2 pubs, a small but well stocked shop, community orchard, 2 play parks and a large village hall which houses a part-time post office.  The parish has a lovely community spirit with many well attended social events scattered through the year including the 10k Run, Flower Festival and Fair in the Square (organised by the church), the Cornwood Show, Christmas Lights along with Big Breakfasts, Wassailing, Apple Pressing, Coffee Mornings, Luncheon Club and many more excuses to meet up with each other.

 

There are also many thriving clubs and organisations including Bowling, Tennis and Camera clubs, WI, Brownies and Rainbows plus the very successful Cricket Club sited between the 2 villages.  You can find contact details for these  on the Clubs and Societies page.
