Budleigh Salterton, Saltern or Salterne as its was known – takes its name from the salt pans that used to be used to collect local salt for preserving. Although freely available on the coast, salt use to demand a high value in-land. The salt itself was collected by monks and the pans were made at the local Otterton priory. The priory made much of its living from its salt production, distributing it via pack animals to many of the villages sprawled out along the stretch of the River Otter. The smooth pebbles on the beach are unusually large for the East Devon area. Many are reported to have been thrown up onto the beach from the Great Storm of 1824 and remained there to form the foundation of today’s long stretch of beach. It was around this time that Budleigh began to build up its reputation as a popular Victorian coastal holiday town. The over large pebbles were even sold as souvenirs to visitors wishing to use them for amongst other things, as paper weights.
For those with an eye to tracing the roots of some of Britain’s most famous historical figures, nearby Hayes Barton should not be missed. Although tiny, it is the location for the birth place of Sir Walter Raleigh. The heart of Raleigh Country could be said to be East Budleigh, because in 1552 the renowned Elizabethan Sir Walter Raleigh was born here in the farm that is now known as Hayes Barton. The Raleigh family had settled here in 1537 and soon became involved in the village community. Walter’s father was a church warden of the Church of All Saints at East Budleigh and the oldest memorial in the church is one to the memory of Joan the first wife of Walter’s father. The Raleigh pew on the left side of the knave is dated 1537.
Walter must have spent many of his boyhood days in Budleigh Salterton, and possibly acquired his love of the sea from the time he had in the company of fishermen on the beach there. Budleigh Salterton was made famous by a painting by Sir John Everett Millais. His picture ‘The Boyhood of Raleigh’ was painted from the Octagon, situated in Fore Street. The ancient wall featured in the background of the painting still stands today! The seaside settlement that is now Budleigh Salterton for generations derived its livelihood from agriculture, fishing and a bit of smuggling on the side. Doomsday records that salt panning was of great importance here, hence the origin of the name Salterton and the remnants of a fine Roman villa near Otterhead suggests that this activity went on as far back as Roman or even Iron Age times.
