Foster, K. + Skinner, R., 01/2016, A30 to A303 Honiton to Devonshire Inn Improvement Scheme, Honiton, Devon (Report - Assessment). SDV359378.

DBA undertaken along a corridor associated with the A30/A303 between Honiton and Devonshire Inn. This study is intended to inform the development of options for improvements to the A30/A303 between Honiton and Devonshire Inn.

The church is located in the village of Upottery within the Otter Valley. The church has a prominent position with a tower overlooking the valley to the east. The church is a prominent feature visible from across the part of the Otter Valley in the vicinity of Upottery. The church’s key setting is the village itself and the farmland of the Otter Valley. The view across the valley which is a largely post-medieval rural landscape contributes to the significance of the church representing its original, tranquil, rural agricultural setting.

The view includes a part of the Site situated along the western slopes of the Otter Valley. Views of the A30 are however entirely screened by woodland and the rising topography. Development of a scheme on the eastern slopes of the Otter Valley that is of such a magnitude that it changes the character of the landscape may be considered to be within the setting of the church and may cause harm to its significance. Such a scheme would however have no effect on the church’s most important setting within the village or on its visual prominence within the valley. Development focussed on the existing road or elsewhere within the Site would have no effect on the setting of the church and cause no
harm to its significance.
