Harbertonford is a village of about 300 houses, 5 km south of Totnes in the region of the South Hams. It lies in the valley of the Harbourne river which is a tributary of the Dart. The river has a steep gradient and has served a string of water mills. Upstream is the latest major construction in the village - the flood defence dam, which does close its sluices occasionally. So the village has remained dry, until July 2012. The picture shows the village centre: the post office stores, with an unusually broad and interesting assortment of things to eat and the tamed Harbourne river in the foreground. The village has a pub, garage, primary school, church, several small businesses and many self employed people.
