A former market town in Devon. Members of the South Tawton branch of the Mallett family have lived here at different times. One of these, named Richard, owned a shop here, however in 1800 he went bankrupt. After this, he joined his brother Robert in Dublin, Ireland and took his family with him. His siblings became the Mallets of Petrockstowe whilst his son started a successful iron foundry in Dublin and his grandson Robert became one of Ireland's most famous engineers.
Much more recently, it has been featured as the main setting for a drama series called 'Jam and Jerusalem' on BBC Television about a fictional Women's Institute starring Dawn French and Joanna Lumley.
