Index for St. Giles in the Heath
The River Tamar near Bohetherick
The River Tamar near Bohetherick

In 928, the boundary between Devon and Cornwall was fixed as the east bank of the Tamar by King Ethelstan of Wessex and reamained so for several centuries. There were few crossing places in those days so a border of just over 60 miles became established between Devon and Cornwall. It was the coming of new parish boundaries in the 19th century that brought

St Giles-in-the-Heath into Devon.
