Appledore is a coastal village sitting at the estuary of the Rivers Taw and Torridge in the county of Devon. Home to the world famous Appledore Shipyard, this has been a thriving fishing and trading village since back in the 14th century. The boat building trade is very traditional and indeed Appledore Shipyard is still very active today and provides employment for many of the town's residents. There is an RNLI lifeboat slipway at the head of the village and the famous Hocking's Ice Cream is made in Appledore. A settlement at this location can be traced as far back as Saxon times when Hubba the Dane led his Viking raiders to defeat in the Battle of Bloody Corner around 878 AD. One of the earliest recorded place names for this village was Tawmutha which means the mouth of the Taw and its present name is believed to have Celtic origins and translates as 'a settlement by a pool of water'.
