East Putford is a small settlement and civil parish in the local government district of Torridge, Devon, England. The parish, which lies about halfway between the towns of Holsworthy and Bideford, is surrounded clockwise from the north by the parishes of Parkham, Buckland Brewer, Bulkworthy, West Putford, and Woolfardisworthy. In 2001 its population was 103, slightly lower than the 125 residents it had in 1901.
The western boundary of the parish is formed by the River Torridge and the land rises from the river to over 200 m. near the top of Melbury Hill in the north. Tumuli on the high ground provide evidence for early inhabitants here. The parish church, dedicated to St Philip and St James the Less, was extensively restored in 1882, but has since been de-consecrated and used as a farm building, though by 2004 both the building and its churchyard were overgrown.
Two farmhouses in the parish are of interest. Mambury was a freehold estate from its origin in the 12th century, and Winslade, near the top of Melbury Hill, was the home of John Wynslade who was executed for his part in the Prayer Book Rebellion of 1549.

IMPACT Community Carbon Calculator
Welcome to the Impact tool for community carbon footprinting. This tool was developed by the Centre for Sustainable Energy (CSE), as part of their Climate Emergency Support Programme, working jointly with the University of Exeter’s Centre for Energy & the Environment (CEE), as part of their South West Environment and Climate Action Network (SWeCAN) project.
The aim of the tool is to give small communities data on their carbon emissions that is easy to interpret, easy to share, and which gives them a clear idea of their main ‘impact areas’ – those big segments where concerted, community based action could really make a dent in local emissions. The information is displayed visually via a series of charts.
OpenStreetMap is built by a community of mappers that contribute and maintain data about roads, trails, cafés, railway stations, and much more, all over the world.

The tithe maps and apportionments are an important source of information about the history and topography of a parish. They provide details of land ownership and occupation, and the type of cultivation of the land, and are often the earliest complete maps of parishes.
