Newton Abbot is a market town in Devon, England on the River Teign, with a population of 23,580 (2001 census).
Newton Abbot has a racecourse and boasts three country parks: Decoy, Stover (situated well away from the town) and Bradley. Part of Newton Abbot’s heritage is the historic Cheese and Onion Fayre, originally held from the 5th to 7th of November in honour of Saint Leonard, but now celebrated at the beginning of September. The town grew very rapidly in the Victorian era as it was home to the South Devon Railway locomotive works. This later became a major steam engine shed and was retained to service British Railways diesel locomotives, although it has now closed and is the site of an industrial estate.
The Newton Abbot Cider Bar is a gem which shouldn’t be missed by anyone visiting this lovely part of South Devon.
