Kingsteignton in the county of Devon is situated alongside the A380 road between Exeter and Torbay. It is within the Teignbridge District Council area.
Until the 1st January 2009, Kingsteignton was considered to be the largest village in England. However, with a population of over 11,000, and the threat of being incorporated into the nearby town of Newton Abbot the then parish council made the decision to change the status to that of a Town Council. In practise this change made very little difference in responsibilities, and, by retaining a friendly community feel, Kingsteignton can truly be described as "A Village Within A Town".
