From the front inside fly leaf: Peter Tavy is on the western border of Dartmoor. The village lies near the southern boundary of the parish which extends beyond Hare Tor to encompass Wilsworthy, Standon Down, Peter Tavy Great Common and the heights of Roos Tor and Staple and Cox Tors, before returning to Pitts Cleave and Harford Bridge. The manor of Cudlipptown is a mile north of Peter Tavy and was part of the parish of Tavistock until 1884.

Over the centuries since the Bronze-Age settlements which surround Peter Tavy were first inhabited, the village has seen tin and copper miners come and go, but has never forgotten its farming roots. Sheep and cattle made it what it is, a quiet, gentle village. No 'great' families have lived here, there are no country estates, and the big landowners were from earliest days interspersed with smallholders.

Approached from any direction, the crocketed pinnacles of St Peter's Church stand proudly above the village. The world has changed, but Peter Tavy has kept its community spirit and today these hamlets hide computers, artists and even international companies, while the local people still meet as they have always done in the Village Hall, the church, chapel and inn to exchange their news and make new friends.
