Sidbury Village, Devon

Road closure Sunday 15th Sept 3pm - Monday 16th 7am

This will not affect the Fun Run and Walk!

Please be aware that the A375 (main road that runs from Sidbury to Honiton) will be closed from 3pm on Sunday 15th until 7am on Monday to allow for essential tree surgery work to be carried out.

We understand the work will be happening half way up the hill towards Honiton at around the Knapp Farm area and that they are thinking of diverting traffic along the lane that runs past the Sid Valley Hotel.

This road closure will NOT affect anyone arriving for the Fun Run and Walk, and won't start until 3pm on Sunday so shouldn't delay anyone afterwards either ... and there will be a diversion in place.

Sidbury village is situated in the Sid valley just a few miles inland from Sidmouth. It was one of the earliest settlements in Devon, having an iron age fort at Castle Hill.

It is situated on the River Sid, which rises at Crowpits Covert (OSGB36 Grid reference SY138963) and runs for 6 miles (10 km) to Lyme Bay at Sidmouth.

Sidbury is mentioned in the Domesday Book as the manor of Sideberia, held by Bishop Osbern of Exeter.

With around 2000 people living in the parish, Sidbury is a thriving community with many active clubs and organisations. Unlike many villages, we still have a pub (The Red Lion), a shop (Drews The Butchers), a Primary school and a village hall.

St Giles church is situated in the centre of the village and is one of the few churches in Devon with a Saxon crypt.
