Axminster is a pleasant, unspoilt Devon market town with charm and character. Hugh Fearnley - Whittingstall of 'River Cottage' TV fame has a local produce shop in Axminster which sells a wide selection of food items. The shop is annexed by the Canteen which serves meals during the day and is open for dinner Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Axminster is linked in history to the carpet that bears its name. The carpet industry was started in 1755 by Thomas Whitty whose factory produced the highest quality, custom made carpets for the country`s stately homes and mansion houses.
Membury is a village one mile north west of Axminster in East Devon. The village has a 13th century church dedicated to St John Baptist with a tall slim tower. In the aisle there is a monument to Sir Shilston Calmady who was killed in a skirmish near the village in February 1646 and was buried in the chancel. The village is within the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and lies just to the north east of Beckford Bridge over the River Yarty, which is the oldest packhorse bridge in East Devon.
