John Reynell, rector of this parish, 5th November, Although William arrived in Brixham on 5 November he did not reach Newton Abbot until 6 November, when he stayed overnight in the town at Forde House, as he made his way to London to assume the English throne. Forde House now known as Old Forde House is situated in the southeast corner of the town, in the parish of Wolborough. The grounds were originally quite extensive, including the whole of what is called Decoy so named, because wildfowl were decoyed there to extend the house's larder , as well as a deer park known locally as Buckland which is now home to a housing estate as well as the iBounce trampoline park.
In King Charles I stayed at the house overnight on his way to inspect the fleet at Plymouth. He returned a few days later and stayed for a further two nights. William of Orange stayed at the house in on the way to his coronation in London, having landed in Brixham a few days earlier.
Teignbridge District Council bought the house in and remain the current owners.

This is a 15th-century c. The Great Western Railway named a class steam locomotive after the manor, however the locomotive was never based in Newton Abbot Shed Code: 83A and was withdrawn from mainline service in the John Passmore Edwards originally wanted to have a hospital built for the town in memory of his mother, who was born there.
However, as the town already had a hospital, he decided on a public library, which was opened in The building is one of the most impressive in Newton Abbot, and originally housed both the library and a Science, Art and Technical School which the Council wanted to include. The building was designed by the Cornish architect Silvanus Trevail. The building was renovated in — On re-opening it was renamed the Passmore Edwards Centre in honour of its benefactor and to reflect its future as a multi-purpose facility.
The Library now works closely with Coombeshead Academy. There are several sets of almshouses in Newton Abbot. The original Newton Abbot poorhouse was based in East Street, and the cellar of the Devon Arms was used as the oakum picking room—where paupers were assigned the unpleasant job of untwisting old rope to provide oakum, used to seal the seams of wooden boats.
Newton Bushel had its own poorhouse, not far from present day Newton Abbot Leisure Centre, previously known as Dyron's. The Poor Law Act required changes and incorporation, so in , a new workhouse was built in East Street and was used to house paupers from the surrounding areas. Over time, the workhouse became more of a hospital for the sick, infirm and aged poor. By there were nearly inmates, and reports of cruel treatment. A new infirmary was built, and during the wars some of the buildings were used as a military hospital.
By , the workhouse buildings were incorporated into the hospital in East Street. The entire site has now been redeveloped. Close to the railway station is Tucker's Maltings, the only traditional malthouse in the UK open to the public. The malthouse—which offers the visitor hour-long guided tours, from the barley to beer discovery centre—produces malt for over 30 breweries, and enough to brew 15 million pints of beer per annum. In April every year, the maltings hosts a three-day beer festival where over different real ales can be sampled.
Said to be one of only two remaining cider houses in the United Kingdom,  Ye Olde Cider Bar in East Street sells only cider , perry , country wines and soft drinks. Its interior and the simple wooden furniture have remained relatively unchanged for over thirty years. However some of the old customs associated with the bar such as limiting women and holiday makers to half pint measures and covering the floor with sawdust have now gone.
In the Newton Abbot Urban District Council instructed its Borough Surveyor, Coleridge Dingley White, to design a town memorial that reflected the importance of the town and the great contribution its young men had made to the war effort  The Unveiling and Dedication of the War Memorial was on Sunday 23 July at 3pm . Newton Abbot has two non-league football clubs: Buckland Athletic F. The headquarters of Devon County Football Association is in the town. Newton Abbot's cricket club, South Devon C. The town also has a long-standing rugby union club, Newton Abbot RFC established , who play home games at Rackerhayes in nearby Kingsteignton.

Archived from the original on 4 June In her talk last night, Noreen Riols explained that this was precisely the point of her book: not merely to record sordid details and grisly events, but to remember with respect, with compassion, and with humility, the people who gave their lives for our freedom.
She feels it is her duty, and it certainly is ours. The evenings are drawing in and all of a sudden it is chilly enough to start wearing jackets and scarves again. However, instead of focusing on rustling piles of russet leaves, street vendors selling paper cones of hot roasted chestnuts, and the first pumpkins and butternut squashes appearing on market stalls, I find my thoughts turning irresistibly in another direction, towards the heat and vibrant colours of the Eastern Mediterranean.
I have never discussed a cookery book on this blog before, despite my very French love of food and cooking, because I find that reviews of cookery books all tend to sound the same. Silvena Rowe is an award-winning British chef and food writer who was born to a Bulgarian mother and a Turkish father. After her father died, a desire to reconnect with her Ottoman heritage led her on a journey of discovery through Turkey, Syria, Lebanon and Jordan. Purple Citrus and Sweet Perfume is the fruit of that journey.
Part memoir, part travelogue, illustrated with beautiful photographs and interspersed with stories and descriptions by such illustrious forerunners as Mark Twain, Alphonse de Lamartine, or Suleiman the Magnificent, this is a recipe book that takes the reader on a sensual voyage of discovery. Mediterranean tends to be synonymous in our minds with the olive oil and tomato-based cooking of Italy and the south of France. This book shows us that there is much, much more than that. I would never, for example, have had the idea for a spicy pomegranate and blood orange chutney had it not been for this book.
Almonds, roses, spices… the recipes are full of magical ingredients that seem to come straight from the realm of fairytales. The Irish poet Seamus Heaney died yesterday at the age of I have spent the past hour or so attempting to remedy this and have read several obituaries with the greatest interest. Heaney was not one to stir up trouble with rash words, but was lauded for his thoughtfulness and tact as much as for the clarity and readability of his verse. So I am looking forward to getting to know Seamus Heaney a little better in the future, even if it is posthumously.
In the wake of his death, I am sure all the major publishing companies will be rushing to edit new anthologies of his work, and I am counting on Everyman to produce one of their pretty pocket-sized hardback editions, which I will be able to slip into my briefcase and read in the train on the way to work of a frosty morning. The first ever Festival of Garden Literature opened yesterday in Hertfordshire. Just look at what Daphne du Maurier did in Rebecca!
One of the most striking features of the Manderley gardens is the dense hedge of blood-red rhododendrons that lines both sides of the great avenue leading up to the house. The Manderley garden plays but a small role in the story itself. It is there mainly for atmospheric purposes but in that it succeeds admirably, and I have always been fascinated by it.
If truth be told, all descriptions of gardens fascinate me. It is like coming across a description of a library: I immediately picture myself there, and the more details there are, the better I like it. And a character who gets up early in order to re-pot basil seedlings wins my instant sympathy.
Sometimes I get a little confused about which I prefer: books or plants. Which is why books about plants appeal to me so much, whether fiction or the kind with complicated Latin names and lots of glossy photographs. I spent many such hours last summer, when it was too hot to do anything but sit in the shade and read. While I leafed through a pile of gardening books, my father read The Novel in the Viola with a small frown, and my mother immersed herself yet again in the world of Harry Potter.
It was very quiet and peaceful, the only sounds those of pages being turned, the dry rattle of the breeze in the palms, and the occasional plop of a frog diving off a lily pad in the nearby fish pond. The school year is drawing to an end. They are positively pawing the ground in their impatience to be gone and it is futile trying to get them to work.
