Clyst Honiton Church

Clyst Honiton (or Honiton Clyst)[1] is an English village and civil parish five miles from Exeter in the East Devon district, in the county of Devon.[2] The church is St Michael and All Angels.[3][4] Exeter International Airport which opened in 1938 is located on the outskirts of the village.[5] The village was originally on the main A30 road from Exeter to Honiton but was bypassed in the 1990s.[6] Another bypass to the east of the village linking the A30 to the new developments around Cranbrook opened in October 2013.[7]

The parish is surrounded clockwise from the north by the parishes of Broad Clyst, Rockbeare, Aylesbeare, Farringdon and Sowton.[8] In 2001 its population was 295.[9]

The village is mentioned in the Robyn Hitchcock song "Goodnight I Say".
