The Deviock Parish Area

Deviock Parish was founded in April 1997 from the southern section of the former St. Germans Parish combined with a small element of St.Martins by Looe (that is West Seaton, Trelowia and West Hessenford ) and an even smaller element of Morval comprising the Bickham Farm complex.
The Parish is most noteworthy for it’s scenery and as befits a coastal Cornish parish which bestraddles a Cornish river, the wildlife complement and the variety of habitats displayed is second to none.

The parish includes the settlements of Hessenford, Seaton and Downderry and the population in the 2001 census was 1341. The parish occupies an area of 2,108 hectares (approx 5,000 acres).

Deviock civil parish has three electoral wards – Hessenford (139 electors), Seaton (249 electors) & Downderry (719 electors).

Deviock Parish Statistics
