The village was originally a woollen and market centre with 2 annual fairs and a station. Now the village centre is within Dartmoor National Park, and it is a thriving community with shops, businesses, school, village hall and community centre.

In August the meeting takes place at The Old SChool Community Centre. All members of the public are invited to attend meetings, and will have the opportunity to speak at a public forum at the start of each meeting.
