Historical Axminster
Abbeyfield
Standing opposite the Old Carpet Factory, this large house was built in 1797 to replace an earlier vicarage, which was from 1834 to 1848, the home of Reverend W.D. Conetbeare, an eminent geologist and vicar of Axminster.
Part of this became Abbeyfield, a home for Senior Citizens, the first in Devon.
