Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Halberton is a village in Devon, England. The Grand Western Canal runs through the village. The village is situated between the historic market towns of Tiverton and Cullompton. Halberton is a large parish in Devon, stretching from Tiverton, almost up to the Somerset border, and from Sampford Peverell to Butterleigh, an area of about 7,520 acres (30.4 km2). Its name is derived from 'Haligbeort' (Albert), the name of the Saxon Chief, and 'tun', a farm settlement.Halberton was once important enough to be a Hundred, an administrative division of a shire. The hundred of Halberton included the parishes of Halberton, Sampford Peverell and Willand, as well as parts of Uplowman and Burlescombe. Many of the farms date back to Doomesday or shortly after and Halberton is still largely a farming community.show more
