About Coryton

There was formerly a large quarry at Coryton, opened in 1778, which produced excellent slates for roofing, tombstones, chimney-pieces, billiard tables, etc.

The opening of the Launceston & South Devon Railway line on 1 June 1865 saw the opening of a station to serve Coryton. The platform was on the right of trains going towards Launceston. It was unstaffed from 14 September 1959 but was retained until the closure of the line on 31 December 1962. The station master's house survives, as does the main office although this has been extended since closure.

In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Coryton like this:

CORYTON, or Corriton, a parish, with a r. station, in Tavistock district, Devon; on Lyd river, 7 miles NNW of Tavistock. Post town, Tavistock. Acres, 1, 334. Real property, £1, 926. Pop., 238. Houses, 48. The property is all in one estate. Slate has been largely quarried. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Exeter. Value, £208.* Patron, Sir L. Newman, Bart. The church is ancient; and was repaired and enlarged in 1838. Charities, £20.
