Location Of Newton Abbot, Devon

Newton Abbot was prominent in the woollen industry and was one of the founders in the clay industry trade in Britain. It is strategically placed at the head of the Teign Estuary situated about four miles inland with strong maritime bonds with surrounding towns including Torbay and Teignmouth. Additionally, it is practically mid-way between Plymouth and Exeter. It was a minor port up until the twentieth century. Eight miles away is also the Dartmoor National Park.
