How did Coldridge get its name?
Coldridge was known as Coleridge even up to the early 1900's, it is a small parish situated on the River Taw, 10 miles from the ancient market town of Crediton. Coldridge was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, as Colrige - it would appear that Coldridges existence as a settlement, dates back to at least Norman times and possibly even earlier. Its name is believed to have derived from the "ridge where charcoal is made" and the fact that it is thought the area was once woodland, this is possibly an accurate description of how the parish got its name.
With no main road going through the village it gives that feeling of times standing still with a quiet relaxing and peaceful atmosphere.
