Ashwater is a village and civil parish in the Torridge district of Devon, England.[1][2] According to the 2001 census it had a population of 651 that had risen to 673 by the 2011 census.[3][4] It is close by the Cornish border, and is about 10 miles north of Launceston.[1]

The church is thirteenth century, with fifteenth-century windows, with an arcade that mixes the two periods. The decorated font is Norman, described by Mee as "a great treasure".[5]
