The parish of Marwood is situated in the heart of rural North Devon, approximately three miles north west of Barnstaple.  Spanning over five thousand acres, it has a large agricultural presence and significant historical interest.

 

Made up of several hamlets including Muddiford, Milltown, Prixford, Kings Heanton, Middle Marwood and Guineaford, there is a primary school and preschool (both rated "Outstanding" by OFSTED), three churches, and several places to visit.
