Slapton Parish (Pop. 360) Two Sunday Schools, one with 30 males and 18 females, who attend the Established Church; the other (commenced about 1818), 28 males and 35 females, attached to Wesleyan Methodists; both supported by voluntary contributions. ABSTRACT OF EDUCATION RETURNS, 1833.

Slapton

Within living memory Slapton was a self contained village with three farms, a brickyard, church and chapel, school, shop, mill, a blacksmith, cobbler, baker and brewer. The rector lived in a gracious house set in large grounds.
