In 1817 the Tavistock Canal had been dug most of the labour being done by French prisoners of war from the Napoleonic Wars to carry copper to nearby Morwellham Quay on the River Tamar. In 1933 the long-disused canal was put to use providing hydroelectric power for the area. Part of this canal runs along the bottom of the garden hence no children for health and safety reasons.
Tavistock is a small market town, providing shopping and entertainment for its residents, many small outlying villages and the local farming community. It is a centre for the West Devon and Dartmoor tourist trade. It is a fast-growing dormitory area for commuters working in Plymouth and has a sizeable and rapidly growing retired population, perhaps drawn by the rural tranquility and scenery.
Tavistock lies on the edge of Dartmoor, around 24 kilometres (14.9 miles) north of Plymouth on the A386, with a population of 11,018.
The Market continues to operate in the large covered market building, the Pannier Market; the main market is on Fridays, on other days the market hosts specialised events, such craft fairs and antique fairs. A Farmers' Market takes place in the Square fortnightly and has been voted Best Farmer's Market in the South West.
The biggest event in the town's calendar is the annual Tavistock Goose Fair (known locally as Goosey Fair") which has existed since 1116. It occurs on the second Wednesday of October, and takes over much of the town for several days either side, drawing crowds which far outnumber the resident population. Traditionally, the Fair was an opportunity for locals to purchase their Christmas Goose allowing plenty of time to fatten the bird before Christmas came.
