ABOUT OUR VILLAGE 'GALMPTON' IN DEVON
Galmpton is a lovely village between Paignton and Brixham with a beautiful area known as Greenway where you can either walk along the well maintained footpaths with stunning views or take one of the many joyful ferry rides along the river Dart. It has a large area of common grassland on its perimeter which most visitors see when they first approach the village travelling from Paignton. The village has many attractive privately owned properties, some quite old as it was populated many centuries ago.
STATISTICS (2001 CENSUS FOR GALMPTON-WITH-CHURSTON)
The heart of the village is positioned in a small basin like area near to the River Dart (part of the river known as Dittisham lake) with single track roads feeding out on all sides leading to villages and seaside resorts of Paignton and Brixham. Also close by is the most popular resort of Torquay the Hub of The English Riviera.
Visitors in vehicles need to drive slowly (see petition for 20 mph speed zone) and be aware of the elderly, children and animals when passing through the village and although there are a few parking spaces for visitors most of these can be occupied by residents' vehicles so care should be taken when parking. See latest news for 20mph speed zone update!
If travelling by steam train from Paignton (Destination Kingswear), depart at Churston Station where you can easily walk into the village. Accommodation can be found at nearby Weary Ploughman. Click here for Stagecoach Bus Services in Torbay
