Cullompton
The Parish of Cullompton extends some seven miles along the valley of the River Culm, covering nearly 8000 acres, with about 8000 inhabitants. Columtune was probably a Saxon settlement. The Saxon word "tun" means town or settlement. Columtune simply means the town on the Culm. In 549 AD St Columba, an Irish Saint preached the word of god in the area and it is highly likely that the name of St Columba has been preserved in the name of the town - Columba's Town. (Columba is the Latin for dove).
