  A one-time coaching town of some importance, Hatherleigh is packed with character.

It has a weekly outdoor market and a pub that brews its own beer.

A moorland monument acts as a reminder of the courage of Lieutenant Colonel Morris, a rare survivor of the Charge of the Light Brigade.

Each November local folk stage a torchlight carnival in which flaming barrels of tar are dragged through the streets.
