Chudleigh

Chudleigh is a tiny village located 64 km west of Launceston between Deloraine and Mole Creek. It was named after a village of the same name in Devonshire, England. The area was first settled in the 1830s. In 1830 Lieutenant Travers Hartley Vaughan was granted land in the district. He sold this in 1837 to Henry Reed, a larger than life character who had arrived in Van Diemen's Land in 1827 and in the space of a decade had acquired considerable wealth through property, shipping and whaling. The property, which had been known as 'Native Hut Corner' was renamed 'Wesley Dale' and it was to here that Reed would retreat for the summer.

Bentley Farm (now part of Tasmania's unique historic accommodation) was built in 1879 on land which had been used for grazing cattle as early as 1827. It is notable for the fact that the walls of the farm house are three bricks thick.
