Colyton is a small town in Devon, England. It is located within the East Devon local authority area. It is 3 miles away from Seaton and 6 miles away from Axminster. Its population in 1991 was 2,783.
Colyton first appeared as an ancient village around 700 AD and features in the Domesday Book as ‘Culitone’. It grew into an important agricultural centre and market town with a corn mill, saw mill, iron foundry and an oak bark tannery that is still functioning.
It was called the “most rebellious town in Devon” due to the number of its inhabitants who joined the Monmouth Rebellion in 1685.
A Saxon church occupied the site of St Andrew’s church until replaced by the present Norman church in the 11th century. The 14th century octagonal lantern tower is said to have been used as a beacon for ships on the once navigable River Axe, to the east, although there is doubt that the tower may be seen at all from the river. The nearby vicarage dates from 1529.
