List of places

Diptford is a village in the county of Devon, England. It is perched on a hill overlooking the River Avon. The name is believed to come from "deep ford", referring to the local site of a river crossing.

At the centre of the village is a small primary school,[1] the parish hall and the recently redeveloped 14th-century church. There is also a temporary pub, which is open 4 times a year.
