There is a lot of history to be found around Okehampton, as well as many historical buildings including the town’s parish church which dates back to Saxon times. These buildings can be prone to issues such as damp, dry rot and woodworm due to the materials from which they were built from, especially buildings with timber building frames.
It was good work and done quickly – Stuart Clay
Okehamptom is in the South West region of England, surrounded by places such as Bristol, Exeter, and Plymouth. Rainfall is higher than the eastern regions as our prevailing wind is south-west. There can be a stream of Atlantic depressions with infrequent but severe major storms bringing heavy rainfall and strong winds. In the summer in the hot sun there can be convective showers and thunderstorms.
It is home to the remains of the largest medieval castle in Devon which sits nearby to the River Okement (from which the name comes). Dating back to the Norman times, the castle was formally a fortification until the 14th century when it’s owners at the time, the de Courtenay’s, became the Earls of Devon and turned the castle into their home. It became abandoned in the 1500s when the last Courtenay was executed by Henry VIII. Now the castle is one of Okehampton’s most popular tourist attractions with a riverside picnic area and woodland walks.
