About Fremington

Fremington is a village and civil parish in North Devon three miles west of Barnstaple. Fremington 'hundred' was one of the 32 historic districts of the county of Devon. It was formerly a borough that sent members to Parliament in the reign of Edward III. The parish includes the neighbouring villages of Bickington and Yelland.

Geographically, the centre of the village is approximately a mile south of its quay, a historic wharf situated on the southern bank of the River Taw. The Tarka Trail (also part of the South West Coast Path), follows the course of the old railway line from Barnstaple to Torrington, and passes over Fremington Pill via the old London and South Western Railway bridge at Fremington Quay.

Fremington Local Nature Reserve was designated in 2006. The reserve comprises two separate areas; Lovell's Field and Leat Meadow. Both locations are County Wildlife Sites, and are within the North Devon UNESCO-designated Biosphere Reserve.
