Tiverton is a town of some 17000 people, lying 15 miles north of Exeter. The town grew, from as early as the 13th century, as a textile centre and market town. Many textile mills and factories still form the basis of the townâ€™s industry. The pink sandstone castle dates from the 12th Century and the town has an interesting folk museum, with many old railway exhibits.
