  Boasting Georgian architecture and offering fine views over the rolling Devon hills, South Molton was a prosperous woolen centre in the Middle Ages.

It lies on the banks of the River Mole in the Taw Valley.
It still stages an annual sheep fair.

Its Guildhall houses a glass-roofed pannier market.

At Quince Honey Farm visitors can watch bees at work via see-through hives.
