Swimbridge can fairly claim to be one of North devon’s most attractive and most interesting villages, set in a deep valley watered by the Venn Stream and overlooked by rolling hills. The village itself, grouped around its gem of a parish church, is forever associated with the famous hunting parson, the rev. John russell – Parson Jack – and the breed of dog he originated. it stands at the centre of a much wider parish, once one of the largest in devon. Although life in the twentieth century was largely centred around agriculture (which remains a vital part of the local economy today) Swimbridge also boasts a considerable industrial heritage, based upon leather tanning, quarrying and mining.
