Manaton Parish Hall
Manaton is a village at the very heart of the Dartmoor National Park, 5 miles from Bovey Tracy. It has exceptional views of the surrounding countryside including Haytor, Hound Tor, Bowerman’s Nose with the high moors to the north.
The Parish Hall sits at the historic centre of the village, next to the village green and opposite the 14th-century St Winifred’s church. Many of the official South East Dartmoor walks converge on Manaton and therefore, the hall is an ideal control point for organised walking or cycling groups.
The original Parish Hall was built in 1930 on land leased from the Church. On expiry of the lease in 1951 the land was acquired for £25. In 1966 the hall was destroyed by a fallen tree and replaced with the current building.
The hall was first registered as a charity in 1953 (and is registered with the Charity Commission 30089). All income is invested to maintain the hall and its facilities.
The hall has a full programme of regular activities including Yoga and Pilates. The Manaton Art group and Women’s Institute also meets monthly in the hall.
The Manaton Produce Market is held on the 3rd Tuesday of every month from 10:30 to 12 noon.
Manaton Makers are returning to Manaton Village Hall for a Christmas Fair from Friday 27th – Monday 30th November inclusive (Covid regulations permitting) and will be open between 10am and 4pm. Do come and join us for a relaxed, festive shopping experience and treat yourselves to some delicious refreshments provided by the Village Hall Committee and volunteers afterwards. We look forward to seeing you there!
