More of a large village than a town, Starcross is the location of the most complete surviving pumping station from Brunel’s Atmospheric Railway laid between Exeter and Newton Abbott.  Passenger ferries run between Starcross and Exmouth from April to October.

Starcross has a thriving local community with many events during the year that visitors can enjoy too. Look out for the Starcross newsletter/magazine produced monthly. St.Paul’s church is a hub for many activities, as is the newly built Sports & Community Pavilion.
