Newton Ferrers Info

The population of Newton Ferrers according to South Hams District Council is 1100, or about 1800 according to The Combined Benefice of Newton Ferrers, Noss Mayo and Holbeton. I haven't tried counting personally because I can't get everyone to stand still for long enough! Either way, the population has just about doubled since 1901, and about 65% are over the age of retirement.

About Newton Ferrers

Newton Ferrers is a village on the South West coast of Devon, about 10 miles by road from Plymouth. The village is situated on the River Yealm estuary, and is separated from it's neighbouring village, Noss Mayo, by a tidal creek, which can be crossed on foot at low tide.

The population of Newton Ferrers swells considerably during the summer time as it becomes a popular destination for visitors, holidaymakers, and visiting yachties. In contrast it becomes very quiet during the winter, and many homes are left unoccupied and blacked out as their "second home owners" leave for the winter, presumably to visit their third homes some where in a warmer climate. Thankfully some of us remain to keep things ticking over.

Newton Ferrers is in the parish of Newton & Noss, and has a church, Holy Cross, which is part of The Combined Benefice of Newton Ferrers, Noss Mayo and Holbeton. The current church dates back to the 12th to 14th Centuries, but there are records of a church on the grounds as long ago as 1084.

Perhaps unusually, the centre of the village is set some distance from the main harbour. Due to it's shape, the harbour is locally known as "The Pool". During the summer months, and fine weather, the harbour comes alive with activity as local and visiting boats come and go. It's a popular hang out for tourists who enjoy sitting in the waterside sun, watching the boating activities. A local water taxi, operated by Billy, is available most of the time during the summer to ferry people about, and take tourists on boat trips. The new harbour complex houses the harbour office where Harbour Master Robin keeps a watchful eye on events, and also provides toilet and shower facilities for visiting boats.
