About Kings Nympton

Location

Kings Nympton is a parish and hill village in North Devon being some 5 ½ miles S.S.W. of South Molton and 4 miles N.W. of Chulmleigh. It exceeds 5,500 acres in area and sits mostly on a promontory above the River Mole which forms nearly half of its parish boundary.

Modern Environment

Still largely a farming community, sheep, beef and dairy cattle, egg production and arable are the main disciplines; other industry includes specialist pork products, guest houses, bespoke forged curtain rails and rugby scrum machines. The population of the parish is around 380 and is split quite evenly between the village and the outlying farms. A Parish Hall, built from intensive fund raising efforts in the1980s, serves the social needs of the community. A county primary school and a small pre-school are in the village.

Worshippers attend St. James's Church and the Methodist Church which is part of the South Molton & Ringsash Circuit.

A wide range of interests are served by a variety of clubs and organisations which include the Tuesday Club, Women's Network Fellowship and the History Society.

In the centre of the village stands the 17th century Grove Inn which, like many of the pretty cottages, has a lovely thatched roof. Elsewhere in the parish lie several good quality farmhouses some of which date back to the 1400s.
