Culm Valley Cloth Trail - St Andrews Church, Cullompton

About

The river Culm flows from the Blackdown Hills into the Exe and out to sea through the ports of Exeter and Topsham. There is a long history of cloth and clothing production in settlements and mills using water power along the Culm, with some exports from Exeter and Topsham. The production and distribution of cloth in the Culm Valley is situated within a wider area, with links to clothiers, manufacturers and financiers in Wellington, Tiverton, Crediton and Exeter.

By visiting the places in this trail you will build up a picture of how Culm Valley cloth and clothing was produced, financed and distributed around the world over many centuries.
