Devon - Tiverton

Tiverton is a town in the English County of Devon. The major town in Mid Devon, it is also the administrative centre for the Mid Devon district, with a population of 38,331.

The town's name is conjectured to derive from 'Twy-ford-ton' or 'Twyverton', meaning 'the town on two fords', and was historically referred to as 'Twyford'. The town stands at the confluence of the riversExe and Lowman. Human occupation in the area dates back to the Stone Age, with many flint tools found in the area. AnIron Age hill fort, Cranmore Castle stands at the top of Exeter Hill above the town, and a Roman fort, or rather marching camp, was discovered on the hillside below Knightshayes Court near Bolham, just to the north of the town.

It was also the site chosen by Henry I for a Norman castle, Tiverton Castle first built in 1106 as a Motte and Bailey type and extensively remodelled in the 13th and 14th centuries.
