The origins of Great Torrington can be traced back to Iron Age and medieval castles built nearby. Most notably, it played a vital role in the English Civil War, becoming the site of the Battle of Torrington (1646).
This involved Parliamentarians, led by Sir Thomas Fairfax, sweeping into the town and defeating Lord Hopton’s forces. Its conclusion marked the end of Royalist resistance in the West Country.
