Welcome to Tamerton Foliot web site. This has been created by the Conservation Society for residents and visitors alike.You will we hope, find useful and interesting information about our village. Here you will find local news, an overview of the history, what Tamerton Foliot has to offer and walks to enjoy.

The Tamerton Foliot Village Conservation Society was founded in 1975 at a public meeting called to discuss unsuitable development and preserve the character of the village. We now have approximately 400 members all of which are welcome to attend our AGM where there is always an interesting talk from an invited speaker.

The Conservation Society Committee meets regularly to discuss and question anything affecting the life of the village. One of the aims is to retain the character of our historic village. We acknowledge that life moves on but are naturally concerned that progress should evolve in harmony with our existing environment.

Our purpose can be summarised as:

1. To conserve the visual appeal of Tamerton Foliot as a village within Plymouth city boundary extolling it’s historical context.

2. To review, assess and comment on proposed development plans within the area of Tamerton Foliot.

3. Act as a local channel of advice and opinion to Plymouth City Council as well as the local MP where deemed necessary.

See the Conservation Society page for information on the committee’s current business. If you have any topics you wish to raise or have discussed please contact us by the form or e-mail us at

The village has several groups and they are detailed in the Organisations page with relevant contacts and links as appropriate.

Contacts for travel, health and education are listed on the Public Services page.
