Holsworthy Town in Devon
Holsworthy is an ancient market town located in North West Devon adjacent to the Rivers Tamar and Deer. It was mentioned in the Domesday Book of William the Conqueror.
This small town has a population of just 2,500 but is known locally for its Pannier Market and thriving livestock market - one of the largest in the South West.
Holsworthy is therefore heavily dependent on farming and agriculture. On Wednesday (Market Day) the town is a focus for the local area and becomes exceedingly busy. The town forms the centre of an area bounded by Stratton, Clovelly, Great Torrington and Okehampton. Highlights of the area include the Tamar Lakes, Holsworthy Woods, the Gnome Reserve near Bradworthy and the jagged coastline of Hartland and Clovelly. The cliffs and beaches of North Cornwall are also well within easy reach by car.
