Caring for our community and the people who live in it


Tawstock Parish is situated on the southern edge of the ancient borough town of Barnstaple. The Parish now encompasses the newer urban areas of Sticklepath and Larkbeer, in the area commonly known as Roundswell. The Parish includes many outlying rural villages and surrounded clockwise from the north by the parishes of Barnstaple, Bishop's Tawton, Atherington, Yarnscombe, Horwood, Lovacott, Newton Tracey and Fremington.

Tawstock village lies near the centre of the Parish and is a peaceful village located beside the picturesque Taw valley in North Devon. While the population of the village is relatively small, the census of 2021 recorded 2744 residents of the parish as a whole.

Historically the Parish was based entirely around a farming community, but now has a growing urban population, and our new website aims to deliver clear information in an up to date way to all its residents.
