Throwleigh - a moorland parish.

People have lived, worked in Throwleigh for thousands of years. The earliest visible remains of past inhabitants are the Bronze Age hut circles just above the village at Shilstone Tor.  Today Throwleigh’s population is around 350, centred around the Church, memorial cross, old forge pond and, recently opened, an “outreach” post office in the church.

It still remains very much a farming community and as such the inhabitants of the parish are spread over a wide area including the hamlets of Wonson, (village Hall and Pub), Murchington and Providence (chapel).

In the warmer months visitors are drawn to the quiet country lanes and good walking country on this moorland fringe.  The Mariners Way runs through part of the parish, and the whole area is criss-crossed with stone lined hedge banks, hollow ways and heather and gorse covered moorland.

Throwleigh Post Office:

Open Tuesday and Friday

1.30 - 3.00 pm
