Great Torrington is known as the Cavalier Town as it played a significant role in the English Civil War (Battle of Great Torrington in 1646).
It is sited on the top of an inland cliff, which provides extraordinary views of the valley and River Torridge below. It is a vibrant community and people in the town, proud of their heritage, can often be seen dressed in costume for re-enactments, festivals and celebrations
