Chillaton is a small village about seven miles north-west of Tavistock. At one time it was a collection of small, mainly 19th century stone cottages lying in the valley on the banks of a small stream, itself a tributary of the river Lyd. The centre point was the square, from which roads ran to Lifton, Lewdown and Tavistock. Today these cottages have been joined by a number of more modern houses.
We are now starting to build up some village history pages, the links below will take you to what we have but we are always looking for contributions to help us in this area.
