Uplyme is a village which lies in East Devon on the Devon-Dorset border and the River Lym, adjacent to the Dorset coastal town of Lyme Regis. It has a population of approximately 1700 recounted as 1663 at the 2011 census. Uplyme is situated in the electoral ward of Trinity whose population at the above census was 2,521.History and backgroundThe parish of Uplyme has one of the largest boundaries in England—in excess of 16mi, the area of the village being approximately 3618acre.The remains of a Romano-British villa were excavated near to the village in 1850. The earliest recorded reference to the parish was in AD740 when Cynewulf, King of Wessex gifted the manor of Uplyme to Glastonbury Abbey. The Domesday Book also mentions the village.The parish church of St. Peter and St. Paul lies within the village and is located adjacent to the primary school. The church is thought to have been founded in the 9th century, but the 14th century tower is the oldest part of the present structure.The new village hall is situated a few hundred yards from the church, with adjacent playing fields containing a children's play area and 2 cricket pavilions (one worthy of listed status is currently disused). The old village hall was replaced by the modern building in 1993 and was financed by determined fundraising and grant funding under the inspired leadership of villager Adrian Pearson.Primary schoolMrs Ethelston's C of E Primary School is named after Mrs Anne Ethelston, the wife of the Reverend Charles Wicksted Ethelston. After her death, Charles Ethelston decided to erect a building in his wife's memory in order to house the already existing school. The main building was not opened until 1873, a year after his own death.
