Welcome to Uplyme Parish Council’s website
Our Mission Statement:
“Uplyme Parish Council is committed to being a council with a vision to create a vibrant and spirited inclusive community in Uplyme, whilst keeping its traditional values”.
Uplyme is a large rural parish in east Devon, England and lies in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village is in a hollow formed by four valleys and a short stretch of coast; the latter being part of the Jurassic Coast and a World Heritage Site.
Historically, Uplyme dates back to pre-Roman times and later the village witnessed stages of the Civil War and the Monmouth rebellion. Judge Jeffreys is said to have tried the Duke’s followers at Court Hall Farm. Mention is also made of Uplyme in the Domesday Book.

The column will also carry details about what’s happening in the area and we encourage the organisers of events to let us know, using the contact form, so we can provide further publicity for your activities.
