Ilsington is one of the biggest parishes in Devon. In over 12 square miles, it ranges from housing estates and hypermarkets to agricultural land and moorland.  The most well known feature is Haytor Rocks since they can be seen from many miles away in all directions.

However, there are many other interesting things to see within the Parish.  Two different ways are provided for learning more about the Parish.  One is to click here to download a map and then by moving the cursor over the map, click on the items of interest.  Since the map may take a little while to download, the same information can also be accessed by clicking on the item of interest from the following list :-
