Kingsteignton is widely rumoured to be the biggest village in England with a population of over 11,000 with more inhabitants than many of Devon's towns. In 1982 the parish council decided that to protect its identity as a separate community Kingsteignton should become a town. The decision to change its status annoyed many residents and a referendum was held which saw its village status restored. A quirk of geology deposited fine quality ball clays on the eastern edge of the Bovey Basin some 30 - 40 million years ago. Their exploitation was boosted in 1791 when Josiah Wedgewood first purchased Kingsteignton clay. Over the past 200 years clay mining has brought continued employment and prosperity to the village.
