Cornworthy is a small village nestled in the rolling Devon countryside of the South Hams between the thriving towns of Totnes and Dartmouth. Listed in the Domesday book, it is an ancient settlement with many interesting and historical buildings, including the ruin of Cornworthy Priory and the beautiful church of St Peter’s.
Incorporating the small hamlets of East Cornworthy and Allaleigh, Cornworthy Parish has some 350 residents. Cornworthy Parish Council is made up of seven Councillors, a clerk and responsible financial officer and meets on the second Monday of the month, excluding August and bank holidays. The parish council operates to serve all the residents of the parish and welcomes members of the public to its monthly meetings. Details of agendas and minutes can be found on this website and on the parish council noticeboards with abridged versions in the parish magazine.
