Stokeinteignhead village, Devon

Stokeinteignhead is a village and civil parish in the Teignbridge district of Devon. It lies south of Shaldon on the River Teign, and is twinned with the French commune of Traviares, Calvados.

The village is the largest settlement of the parish and includes a primary school, pre-school, a general stores/post office, a tea room - The Old Bakery - and two pubs both having restaurants - including the Old Church House Inn.

The mascot of Stokeinteignhead, appearing on the village signs, is the Cirl Bunting.

Despite its closeness to the river Teign, the name Stokeinteignhead is not derived from it: in the Domesday Book the district contained thirteen manors which totalled an area of ten hides and the whole area was known as the 'Ten Hide'. This was later corrupted to Teignhead through the influence of the river name. The name of the nearby village of Combeinteignhead has a similar derivation.

Most of the village forms a conservation area and it includes a large number of listed buildings.
