Transport

Chudleigh Knighton is served by transport links in the form of bus services both from Newton Abbot and Exeter. The village used to have a railway station, Chudleigh Knighton Halt, on the Teign Valley Line. The station opened on 9 June 1924 but was closed on 9 June 1958.

Chudleigh Knighton Heath

The nearby Chudleigh Knighton Heath, a Site of Special Scientific Interest, is a habitat for many rare species including the ant, Formica exsecta. The Heath was once the village's main football pitch and was the venue for many sports days for Chudleigh Knighton Church of England Primary School. However the Heath became so run down it was almost impossible to navigate, so the School opened its own private sports field opposite to the village play park.
