The road between the Two Mile Oak Cross and Gulland Cross is going to be restricted to no through traffic and parking from the 26th March for a maximum of 5 days.  The alternative, signed, route for vehicles will be via - Whiddon Rd, Whiddon Cross, Park Hill, Marldon Road, A381, Two Mile Oak Cross and vice versa.  The restriction is in place so Devon Highways Carriageway patching works can take place.  For additional information contact: SKANSKA UK Telephone: 07973 972609. 

The road between South Devon Veterinary Hospital and Forde Close is going to be closed on the 28th May for a maximum of 5 days.  The expectation is the road will re-open on the 30th May unless there are complications. There will be access to land and premises in this time.  The suggested route to avoid this closure is to use Court Grange Lane, or to reach the areas around the Cider Works use the main route into the village from Totnes Rd. The road is closed to renew a communication pipe, if you would like any additional information, please do contact KIER MG LTD, Telephone 0844 346 2020

Refurbished in 2005, the buildings now comprise a large meeting room with kitchenette and  public toilets and very recently acquired a WIFI network. The Parish Rooms are now available for hire by the hour or day by calling Lynn Howard on Abbots 351564.
