Ivybridge (pronounced Audio-IPA|En-uk-Ivybridge.ogg|/ˈaɪvibrɪdʒ/) is a small town and civil parish in the South Hams, in Devon, England. It lies about convert|9|mi|km|1 east of Plymouth. It is at the southern extremity of Dartmoor, a National Park of England and Wales and lies along the A38 "Devon Expressway" road. Ivybridge has a population of over 12,000.

Mentioned in documents as early as the 13th century, Ivybridge's early history is marked by its status as an important crossing-point over the River Erme on the Exeter-to-Plymouth route. In the 16th century mills were built using the River Erme’s power. The parish of Saint John was formed in 1836.cite web |url=http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~valhender/dirtrans/mor1870/ivybridge.htm |title= Ivybridge|accessdate=2008-04-27 |work=Morris and Co.'s Commercial Directory and Gazetteer 1870] Ivybridge became a parish in 1894 and a town in 1977.

The early urbanisation and development of Ivybridge largely coincided with the Industrial Revolution. When the South Devon Railway Company built its train route through Ivybridge in the 19th century a paper mill was constructed alongside it and this lead to an increase in housing nearby. The paper mill, now French owned, still provides local jobs. Although some people think of Ivybridge as a dormitory town, many people work in the town itself, and agriculture continues to play an economic role for Ivybridge. The area surrounding Ivybridge is almost completely farmland. It holds a farmer’s market every month, though most of the sellers come from outside of the immediate area.

When heavy industry diminished during the latter half of the 20th century, the population has boomed (400% in 30 years) to grow as a dormitory town, supported by its position between Plymouth, Torbay and Exeter, from 1,574 people in 1921 to 12,056 in 2001.cite web |url=http://www.devon.gov.uk/etched?_IXP_=1&_IXR=111879 |title= Census statistics 1801-2001|accessdate=2008-04-26 |work=Devon County Council]

History

The name Ivybridge is derived from a small 13th-century hump-backed bridge of the same name. It was the only means of crossing the river until 1819. "Ivy" was used to describe the bridge, because there was ivy growing on the bridge. As the bridge was the centre of the village and important to its very existence, it was named the "parish of Ivybridge" in 1894. Edmund Barron Hartley was born in Ivybridge on 6 May, 1847. He was awarded the Victoria Cross in Moirosi's Mountain, Basuto War, 5 June, 1879. [cite web |url=http://www.homeusers.prestel.co.uk/stewart/brookwoo.htm |title= Grave location for holders of the Victoria Cross in: Brookwood cemetery, Woking, Surrey|accessdate=2008-04-26 |work= victoriacross.org.uk]

The first mention of settlement in Ivybridge was the manor of Stowford in the Domesday Book of 1086. [cite book|first=Bob|last=Mann|url=http://www.ivybridge-devon.co.uk/books/bob_mann/pdf/Bob_Mann_Ivybridge.pdf|pages=Page 7|chapter=Stowford|title=Ivybridge|accessdate=2008-04-28|isbn=1899073469|publisher=Obelisk Publications|year=1996|format=PDF] Although the first mention of Ivybridge came in 1280 when it was described as "dowry of land on the west side of the River Erme, by the Ivy Bridge."cite web |url=http://www.ivybridge.gov.uk/tourism/past.htm |title=The Past and The Present|accessdate=2008-04-27 |work=Ivybridge Town Council website] There was a chapel, that was on the site of Saint John's church, since 1402. [cite book|last=Hoskins|first=William George|authorlink=W. G. Hoskins|title=Devon|url=http://www.devon.gov.uk/localstudies/110545/1.html|accessdate=2008-06-28|year=1954 |publisher=Phillimore & Company, Limited|isbn=1860772048] From the 16th century onwards mills were built in the town, harnessing the power of the river. Records show that in the 16th century there was a corn mill, a tin mill and an edge mill. One of the mills, 'Glanville's Mill' (a corn mill), was situated where many of the town's shops are today and gives its name to the shopping centre. The first church (Saint John's) was built in 1790 as a chapel of ease, but 45 years later in 1835 it was consecrated as a district church. In 1819 the Ivy Bridge lost its position as the only means of crossing the river when the 'New Bridge' was built joining Fore Street and Exeter Road.

In 1977 Ivybridge became a town and throughout the 1980s and 90s underwent a period of rapid growth, due to the A38 road by-pass. Between the censuses in 1981 and 2001 the population more than doubled from 5,106 to 12,056.

Governance

Ivybridge is represented by four tiers of elected government. Ivybridge Town Council forms the lowest tier of governance whose statutory role is to communicate local opinion to local and central government.cite web |url=http://www.ivybridge.gov.uk/council/ |title=Ivybridge Town Council|accessdate=2008-04-27 |work=Ivybridge Town Council website] Failed verification|date=April 2008 The next tier is the district council — South Hams District Council. They take care of matters such as local planning and building control, local roads, council housing, environmental health, markets and fairs, refuse collection and recycling, cemeteries and crematoria, leisure services, parks, and tourism. The next tier is Devon County Council, who take care of much larger matter such as: education, social services, libraries, main roads, public transport, policing and fire service trading standards, waste disposal and strategic planning. The Parliament of the United Kingdom is responsible for matters such as education, health and justice.

It is a town and parish divided into three wards: Ivybridge Filham (the east of the town), Ivybridge Central (the central area of the town) and Ivybridge Woodlands (the west of the town). [cite web |url=http://www.devon.gov.uk/ivybridgebaselineprofile.pdf |title= Devon Town Baseline Profile|accessdate=2008-04-26 |work=Devon County Council|format=PDF] The current mayor is Councillor Alan Wright who was appointed in 2007. In 2007 Ivybridge town council won the Aon/NALC (National Association of Local Councils) Council of the Year. [cite web |url=http://www.nalc.gov.uk/Latest_News/Councilaward07.aspx |title=Council of the Year 2007|accessdate=2008-04-27 |work=The NALC] Its town hall is located close to the centre of the town and the previous town hall - Chapel Place is still in existence and located in the centre of the town close to the Ivy Bridge.

Before 1894 Ivybridge was made up of four neighbouring parishes: Harford - convert|2|mi|km north; Ugborough - convert|2.5|mi|km east; Ermington - convert|2|mi|km south and Cornwood - convert|3|mi|km northwest. [cite book|first=Bob|last=Mann|url=http://www.ivybridge-devon.co.uk/books/bob_mann/pdf/Bob_Mann_Ivybridge.pdf|pages=Page 10|chapter=Ivy Bridge|title=Ivybridge|accessdate=2008-04-30|isbn=1899073469|publisher=Obelisk Publications|year=1996|format=PDF] All the parishes’ boundaries met at the Ivy Bridge. In 1836 the Parish of Saint John was formed (the name of the church at the time, which was named after John the Evangelist). The parish represented the small central area of Ivybridge known at present. In 1894 St John's parish became a parish church for the newly created parish of Ivybridge. 83 years later the village and civil parish of Ivybridge became a town in 1977. Its local government district has been the South Hams since 1 April, 1974 and its county constituency has been South West Devon since 1997.

The town forms part of the county constituency of South West Devon. Its Member of Parliament is Gary Streeter representing the Conservative party who hold 44.8% of the votes. The town’s three wards are each used for voting at the local elections and general elections.

International Links

Ivybridge's first official twinning was with Saint-Pierre-sur-Dives in 1972 before Ivybridge became a town. Since then it has developed unofficial town twinnings (exchanges) and Friendship Treaties.

At coordinates coor dms|50|23|28|N|3|55|12|W|city (50.233, -3.551) Ivybridge is situated deep in the south western peninsula of England, Ivybridge is convert|182|mi|km from London, convert|10|mi|km from Totnes and convert|28|mi|km from Exeter. The main road in and out of the town (the A38) allows fast access to its nearby city Plymouth for many of Ivybridge’s commuters.

The topography of Ivybridge is generally hilly. This is because of the River Erme which flows right through the centre of town. To the east and to the west of the river the land is elevated forming a valley. The river first enters the town at convert|90|m|ft metres above sea level and leaves the town at convert|40|m|ft metres above sea level. At its height the top of the east and west of the valley is convert|80|m|ft metres above sea level. The western beacon is a hill that overlooks the town; its peak can be seen from almost anywhere in the town. It's convert|328|m|ft metres above sea level and convert|278|m|ft metres above the town. There is also an area of woodland called Longtimber woods to the north of the town, which attracts many walkers along its riverside path.

The geology of Ivybridge is varied. Throughout most of the town the rock is Old Red Sandstone (sedimentary) from the .

The built environment in and around Ivybridge is mainly characterised by its suburban streets plans and houses, although in the centre of Ivybridge it’s mainly characterised by victorian buildings. From the centre of the town most buildings are terraced and now many of these buildings have been converted into retail outlets along Fore Street – the town’s central business district. In the middle layer of the town most buildings are semi-detached and built on quite steep roads. More detached houses are found on the outer layers of the city on the east and on the west of the town. Over the past decades the town has been shaped by its two most essential pieces of infrastructure: the railway line to the north and the A38 dual carriageway to the south. No large scaling housing has been built on either side of these boundaries. Due to this Ivybridge has been forced to grow east and west rather than north and south; it stretches approximately convert|1.76|mi|km from east to west and convert|1|mi|km from north to south.

Climate

Along with the rest of South West England, Ivybridge has a temperate climate which is generally wetter and milder than the rest of the British Isles. The annual mean temperature is approximately convert|11|°C|°F|0|lk=on and shows a seasonal and a diurnal variation, but due to the modifying effect of the sea the range is less than in most other parts of the British Isles. February is the coldest month with mean minimum temperatures between convert|3|°C|°F|0 and convert|4|°C|°F|0. July and August are the warmest months with mean daily maxima over convert|19|°C|°F|0.

South West England has a favoured location with respect to the Azores high pressure when it extends its influence north-eastwards towards the British Isles, particularly in summer. Coastal areas have average annual sunshine totals over 1,600 hours.

Rainfall tends to be associated with Atlantic depressions or with convection. The Atlantic depressions are more vigorous in autumn and winter and most of the rain which falls in those seasons in the south-west is from this source. Average annual rainfall is around convert|980|mm|in|0. The number of days with snow falling is typically less than ten per winter. November to March have the highest mean wind speeds, with June to August having the lightest winds. The predominant wind direction is from the south-west.cite web | title=About south-west England | work=The Met Office |url=http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/climate/uk/location/southwestengland/index.html | accessdate=2006-05-28]

Demography

Ivybridge’s most recent census indicates that Ivybridge had a population of 12,056. The United Kingdom Census 2001 was carried out by the Office for National Statistics in England and Wales, on Sunday, 29 April, 2001.cite web |url=http://www.statistics.gov.uk/census/2011Census/default.asp |title= The 2011 Census|accessdate=2008-04-27 |work=The Office for National Statistics] The next census to take place will be on 27 March. To put that figure into comparison with the area surrounding Ivybridge: it accounts for about 15% of the South Hams' total population (83,200) and it accounts for about 1% of Devon’s total population (1,122,100).

Economy

Ivybridge's earliest known economy relied on the River Erme with a corn mill, tin mill and an edge mill in existence in the town. Later development of the town relied on both the River Erme and the railway, which was part of the Industrial Revolution of the United Kingdom The largest employer to the town during the Industrial Revolution was Stowford Paper Mill, which lead to population growth in the town. The paper mill is still in use today providing jobs for the town. With the expansion of the town in the late 20th century much of the new jobs are in the service sector of Industry. Due to the A38 Ivybridge's transport to nearby city Plymouth was made possible as a commuter route. As a result a lot of Ivybridge's work or "economy" is made in Plymouth and nearby towns. Ivybridge does still have some of its own industry with a small inustrial estate at the south of the town and very nearby an industrial estate just to the east at Lee Mill. There have been attempts to brand the town as a walking centre for southern Dartmoor. There is good access to Dartmoor from the town — one route follows the route of the old china clay railway to Redlake in the heart of the moor. The Two Moors Way, which crosses Dartmoor and Exmoor starts in Ivybridge and finishes in Lynmouth on the North Devon coast. The shopping area mainly of Fore Street provides some jobs and services for the town, although a lot of jobs come from much larger centres such as: the Tesco Extra superstore at Lee Mill and from Endsleigh Garden & Leisure. The town has six public houses: The Sportsmans, The Bridge, The Exchange, The Old Smithy, The Duke of Cornwall and The Imperial.

Landmarks

The town's natural landmark is Western Beacon; a hill that overlooks the town. Many people walk up there for the views of Ivybridge and the South Hams. The town's first manmade landmark is the Ivy Bridge; a 13th century hump-backed bridge covered in Ivy. It is still in use today and gives the name of the town – Ivybridge. The two remaining industrial landmarks of the town are the Viaduct over the River Erme and the Paper Mill. They were key to the town's initial growth in the Industrial Revolution and are still importance to the town today. In the centre of the town a war memorial was constructed ,and each year on Remembrance Day the town holds a ceremony to those who lost their lives. The modern landmark of the town (The Watermark) began construction in 2007 and was completed in March 2008 at a cost of £1.4 million.
