Grumley-Grennan, T. + Hardy, M., 2000, Gidleigh. A Dartmoor Village Past and Present, 54 (Monograph). SDV359347.

Worthy of note is the telephone box outside the Village Hall. It is one of the standard British Telecom 1960s type and is still useful to the village, particularly for visitors lost in the lanes. Valuable to the community who are keen to see it retained.
