Bickleigh, Mid Devon village, Devon

Bickleigh is a village and civil parish in Mid Devon District. It lies about four miles south of Tiverton and is in the former hundred of Hayridge.

According to the 2001 census it had a population of 239.

The village lies in the valley of the River Exe at the point where it meets the much smaller River Dart. There is an attractive medieval stone bridge across the Exe.

The village is mentioned in the Domesday Book as 'Bichelei', meaning 'Bicca's meadow'.

Bickleigh Castle, the village manor house formerly known as Bickleigh Court, has a Norman chapel and baptismal font.

The village should not be confused with the village of Bickleigh, just to the northeast of Plymouth in the South Hams.
