Modbury with its enchanting individual shops is officially not a town eventhough it's too big to be a village.

The Swete Family lived at Traine near Modbury and were town benefactors - John Swete was a well known 18thy century painter.

Names of streets Runaway Lane , Cotlass Lane may have their origin in the 1643 civil war between Roundheads and Cavaliers.
