The local area guide to living in Chittlehampton

Chittlehampton is a village and civil parish in Devon that has been a thriving settlement since 700 A.D. The parish is perhaps most famous for the legend of St. Urith (Hieritha in Latin), which tells the story of a Christian virgin woman who, under instigation of her stepmother, was beheaded and cut to pieces by the villagers. Legend also has it that scarlet pimpernels sprouted where she fell which was especially remarkable because the area was in a drought at the time. However, Historians have argued that, considering the time period, it is more likely that she was killed by Viking invaders.

Nevertheless, the parish church, St. Hieritha’s, and St. Urith’s Well have both been a point of attraction for visitors for many years with people making pilgrimages to the well until the 16th century. The Grade II well is listed under the Planning Act 1990 as amended for its special architectural or historic interest. Three adjoining cottages (Barnstaple House, Galleon Cottage & Plantaganet Cottage), Coachman's House and Clock Tower, Hawkridge Barton, Hudscott House and Stone Retaining Walls Forming Moat Circa 5-10 Metres West of Brightly Barton from the 17th century make up the remainder of Chittlehampton’s Grade II listed buildings. The Church of St. Hieritha is the only building in the civil parish listed as a Grade I.
