Feniton Village

St. Andrew’s Church stands in the original village along with the village hall, post office and a small number of cottages.

Feniton new village, which is considerably larger, lies approximately three quarters of a mile to the west. It was developed mainly from the mid 1960s onwards on an area known as Sidmouth Junction and includes many homes, a new school, shops and social club. The old station buildings have gone and there is a very modest structure in its place. However the original Railway Hotel building still stands and is now called the ‘Nog Inn’.
