BEATING THE BOUNDS 2014

This traditional event to reaffirm the boundary of the parish of Kingsteignton takes place every 7 years. Open to all, it is a walk which takes in as many boundary stones as possible where, in days gone by, a young person from the village would be 'bumped' on the stone to help them exactly remember the extent of the parish! It is planned to take place over two Saturdays in September, the 13th and the 20th. More details to follow.

Kingsteignton is a town and civil parish in South Devon, England. It lies at the head of the Teign Estuary to the west of Teignmouth in the Teignbridge district. It is bypassed by the A380 road between Exeter and Torbay and is also on the A381 to Teignmouth, the A383 to Newton Abbot and the B3193 towards Chudleigh.

Kingsteignton was, until recently, purported to be the largest village in England, with a population of over 11,000. The threat of being incorporated into the nearby town of Newton Abbot prompted the parish council to change the village's status to a town itself: the change took effect from 1 January 2009. However, with a friendly community feel, it can truly be described as "The Village Within A Town".
