Chudleigh is a small town in Central Devon, England between Newton Abbot and Exeter. The electoral ward with the same name had a population of 6,125 at the 2011 census.GeographyChudleigh is very close to the edge of Dartmoor and in the Teign Valley. Nearby Castle Dyke is an Iron Age Hill Fort which demonstrates far earlier settlement in the area. It is also near Haldon Forest, a Forestry Commission property.The town has been bypassed by the A38 road since 1972. It has expanded a good deal in recent years as commuter houses have been built around its edges, but still retains a fairly traditional village centre.AmenitiesLocal amenities include an outdoor swimming pool, cricket field, football pitches, allotments, a skate park, two doctors' surgeries, a dentist and a library. There is a primary school located in the town.Nearby "the Rock" is a natural beauty spot and attracts rock climbers who scale the range of routes on the (limestone) crag.TransportChudleigh is bypassed by the A38. The original A38 still runs from a point near to Chudleigh railway station, through the centre of the town as far as Harcombe Cross. The current northbound A38 follows the old route to the top of Haldon Hill. Chudleigh's proximity to the A38 makes it a viable commuter town for residents working in Newton Abbot, Plymouth and Exeter. The A38 meets the M5 6mi to the north at Exminster. Also nearby is the A380 which provides a connection to Newton Abbot and Torbay.
