Filleigh, Devon

Filleigh is a small village, parish and former manor in North Devon, on the southern edge of Exmoor, 3 1/2 miles west of South Molton. The road passing through the village was, until the 1980s opening of the North Devon Link Road, the main highway between the North Devon administrative centre of Barnstaple and South Molton, leading westwards to Taunton. The village is thus now undisturbed by large volumes of traffic.
