The river Taw rises on Dartmoor and one of its tributaries, the Little Dart, flows through the small hilltop town of Chulmleigh. The woodland around Chulmleigh and Eggesford Forest is quite ancient and walkers will enjoy numerous scenic routes in this quiet, unspoilt countryside. Many interesting plants are to be found including the wood anemone, wood sorrel and spurge. In Heywood Wood are earth ramparts of a Norman motte and bailey castle. There are also unusual trees such as the chile pine and western red cedar. The Culm grasslands are considered among the finest examples of species rich grasslands in the world. These grasses are vital for the survival of rare species such as the curlew and marsh fritillery butterfly, while the hedges and copses dating from Saxon times are inhabited by the dormouse and rare brown hairstreak butterfly. The brown owl and largest population of wild otters in England are also present. Chulmleigh parish has been designated an Area of Rural Tranquillity and an Area of Great Landscape Value. Chulmleigh was originally settled in 815 by the Saxons and named Ceolmundís Leigh, after its founder, who appreciated the hunting potential for deer and wild boar in the nearby forests.
