Greater Pinhoe

Pinhoe sits on the northern outskirts of Exeter in Devon. Once a small leafy village separated from the city by woodland and fields, extensive local development has transformed our sense of place.

New families have revived Pinhoe’s community spirit and during the covid pandemic people pulled together to support residents young and old, helping their neighbours and making new friends. Greater Pinhoe is somewhere people know and care about their neighbours, where our sense of history connects us deeply to the countryside across the Northern Hills and into the Clyst Valley.

We’re sharing local memories, old photographs and historical documents, to tell a story of Pinhoe you won’t find anywhere else. Influenced by the brilliant work of Common Ground and driven by our sense of community in this special place, this project celebrates our 21st century village.
