On the banks of the River Teign in the county of Devon lies the town of Newton Abbot, home to over 20,000 residents.
One of the town's most famous landmarks is its popular thoroughbred racecourse, which is one of the country's premier venues for national hunt racing and draws huge crowds over the summer racing season.
On the outskirts of the town lie no less than three stunning country parks - Bradley, Stover and Decoy - that are enjoyed by thousands of ramblers and birdwatchers every year.
The town has several interesting landmarks such as the imposing thirteenth century St Leonards Tower, which is the last surviving remnant of a larger medieval chapel, and the Elizabethan manor Forde House, which is situated amid beautiful grounds and has seen some of British history's most famous figures pass through its doors over the centuries.
