South Molton

The Devon town of South Molton lies about ten miles to the south east of Barnstaple, on the edge of Exmoor.  Now a small market town with a population of around three thousand, serving the local sheep and cattle farming area, South Molton was once at the centre of a thriving iron and copper mining industry and, up to the mid nineteenth century, was also prominent in the wool trade.
