Sister cities of Kingskerswell

Kingskerswell is a village and civil parish in the south of the county of Devon, England. The village grew up where an ancient track took the narrowest point across a marshy valley and it is of ancient foundation, being mentioned in the Domesday Book. It has a church dating back to the 14th century and the ruins of a manor house of similar date. The coming of the railway in the 1840s had a large effect on the village, starting its conversion into a commuter town.

Today it is situated on a busy main road, part of the A380, between Torquay and Newton Abbot. There had been proposals to reroute this road to relieve the traffic bottleneck since 1951.
