Devon County Coucil have given notice that the bridge over the river Hems in Littlehempston village will be closed from Monday 6th November for up to five days until Friday 10th November. If you come to the Tally from “up north” (e.g. Staverton, Landscove, Broadhempston, Denbury, etc.) then you won’t be affected, but if you drive to our pub from anywhere else, then you’ll have to take a short diversion around our beautiful Devon lanes.
If you’re coming along the A381 from the Newton Abbot direction, then you need to turn off right earlier than usual at Red Post Cross (immediately after Red Post Garage) and follow the diversion signs. And if you’re coming along the A381 from the Totnes direction then don’t take your usual left turn at the Tally Ho sign before the Pig & Whistle – instead carry on along the A381 for about another mile, and then turn left at Red Post Cross (sign-posted to Fishacre Barton and Broadhempston) and follow the diversion signs.

More details, including DCC’s formal site notice, are on the Littlehempston website.
So please don’t be put off coming to the Tally whilst these roadworks are under way. If anything the atmosphere and company should be even better than usual, with no through traffic passing, and loyal customers who’ve gone that extra mile sharing the pub with you.
