Saturday 20th September, second half still to come - REGISTER NOW! see below

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! See also LATEST NEWS for a full report of the Saturday, 13th September walk. To download a 'Registration Form' for the walk on the 20th September, please click here    

 Below:   Group of 24 walkers being led by Mr John Stacey, who set off on the first half of the Beating the Bounds on Saturday 13th September, from the Passage House Inn.  A great day was had by all!

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".
