will be held on
Saturday 15th August 2015
The annual Ashwater Show will be held on Saturday 15th August 2015 at the Show Field on the edge of the village. There will be our usual Cattle, Sheep, Young Handlers and popular Horse classes, plus Fur and Feather and a Family Fun Dog Show.
The GENUKI website has a map showing all the parishes of North-West devon here, which shows that Ashwater borders on twelve other parishes. For the historically-minded, they also have a map of Ashwater parish from 1850, which is available here.
There is an entry for Ashwater in the Devon County Council Gazetteer (click here).
Ashwater Parish is also home to the Quoditch Moor Nature Reserve, which has its own website (click here).
Ashwater Station used to be on the stretch of the North Cornwall Railway from Halwill to Padstow, but the line closed in 1967. Public Transport in the parish is now much more limited.
At the centre of the village is the green, which has some swings for the children to play on, and is host to many village events, such as the annual Easter Egg Hunt. The Village Inn is situated directly on the green, whilst the other amenities are within a (very) short walk.
There is a thriving local community, with many local events and societies.
