Pinhoe crosses electoral and constituency boundaries which have lost much of their meaning as our community grows. We map Greater Pinhoe by the many connections of landscape and history between the communities who live here
From the top of Higher Field, Pinhoe reaches into Poltimore and the Clyst Valley across the skyline view of Ash Copse. We include new residents in WestClyst and, crossing the B3181, track along current developments through the medieval history of Pin Court Farm.
Pinhoe’s community field on Langaton Lane connects the two Tithebarn estates as Pin Brook flows through Monkerton and beneath the M5 all the way through the new Country Park to join the River Clyst at Mosshayne.
Following traces of the Monkerton Ridgeline along Blackhorse Lane and the former grounds of Redhayes House, through Hill Barton’s meadow field and along Hollow Lane, the tree line crosses into Summerway and leads through Eastern Fields, the deep time history of Cheynegate’s holloway to the Northern Hills where Pin Brook springs near Fairy Dell.
MAPPING OUR BOUNDARY : A RING OF TREES
We are always developing plans to protect and repair the trees and hedgerows across Pinhoe. If you’re interested in being involved, we’d love to hear from you. We’re grateful for the advice of Treeconomics at University of Exeter, Exeter City Council’s Tree Officer Joe Morshead, Devon Wildlife Trust and the dedicated volunteers of Wild Pinhoe.
