Just north of Bude on the A38, Kilkhampton is a village which dates back to beyond Saxon times. Here the remains of a 12th century motte and bailey style Norman castle can still be seen and the church of St James the Great is at least 450 years old. It is one of many churches dedicated to this saint on a pilgrims' route, which leads ultimately to Santiago (St James) de Compostela in northern Spain. The two pubs, the New Inn and the London Inn, serve food and drink.
