Littlehempston is a popular parish with a 14th century public house and an ancient church. It is a thriving community with a wide range of events and social activities and beautiful country walks. The ancient borough of Totnes being a short distance away, enjoys a prominent position on the River Dart. The town is one of Devon's gems: full of both colour and character which stems from a rich cultural, historical and archaeological heritage. It is the second oldest borough in England and is full of facilities including its own hospital, two supermarkets, interesting shops and galleries together with riverside walks, guildhall, churches and its very own norman castle.
