Yealmpton village, Devon

Pronounced 'Yalmpton', this is a village and civil parish in the South Hams of Devon. It lies on the A379 Plymouth to Kingsbridge road and is about 8 miles from Plymouth. Yealmpton derives its name from the River Yealm that flows through the village. At the 2001 census, it had a population of 1,923.

Yealmpton is home to a 400 year-old stone cottage, where it is said, a version of the famous rhyme 'Old Mother Hubbard' was written. It is also the site of Kitley Caves where green marble was quarried; there is an arch of it in the British Museum.
