Pictures of Galmpton
in the county of Devon
Galmpton is a medium sized village located between Paignton and Brixham by the River Dart, close to Stoke Gabriel. Agatha Christie lived here and was closely linked to the local Primary School which dates back to the 19th Century. She was a frequent visitor and was often asked to mark children's essays and stories. She was on the board of governers - and she opened the school assembly hall (there is a plaque signifying this).
Agatha Christie lived at Greenway House, just outside of the village, and the house is still in the possession of her family (her daughter, Mrs. Hicks, was on the board of governers of the school when I attended it between 1979 and 1985).(information by Neil Treeby of Galmpton)
