of the Parliament of the United Kingdom
The constituency is based around the western portion of Devon
. The main towns within the constituency are Bideford

Following a review of constituency boundaries conducted by the Boundary Commission for England
, a significant change to existing constituencies means many electoral wards have been used to become part of a new Central Devon
