Exeter & District Model Boat Club
"The Exeter & District Model Boat Club was formed in 1980 to cater for the interest in model boating in and around Exeter. Members interests include radio controlled scale electric and steam model boats and classic yachts (no I.C. powered or fast electric boats are allowed on the water).
We used to sail at the flood relief channel in Exwick and then in 1989 we moved to Crealy Adventure Park and sailed on their Dragonfly lake. In 2013 we moved to our present location Canonteign Falls where we sail on Wednesdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays.
The Canonteign Falls management and staff are very friendly and helpful and we are thoroughly enjoying ourselves and sailing our boats on their lakes.
Our website address is www.exetermodelboats.webeden.co.uk so if you wish to know more about the Club or become a member, please go on our website and the contacts are on there."

TS Canonteign' Teign Valley Sea Cadets
Canonteign remains proud of its association within the Teign Valley Sea Cadets. In the past we have hosted the Memorial Parade on the Battle of Algiers Memorial Day on 27th August. It is a tradition and association we are keen to continue. The TS Canonteign Teign Valley Sea Cadets Unit is named after the 1st Viscount Exmouth of Canonteign, Sir Edward Pellew, Vice-Admiral of the Mediterranean fleet during the last years of the Napoleonic wards and then Admiral of the Home fleet until 1822. Sir Edward Pellew purchased the Canonteign estate in 1812 and it remained the Pellew family home until the 1990s. Sir Edward Pellew’s most famous ship was the Indefatigable, this is the name we have given to our wooden play galleon in memory of this great ship and greater Admiral.
Teign Heritage Centre
Home to the exhibition charting the amazing story of naval hero Admiral Pellew, including his wonderful portrait by Sir Thomas Lawrence. The monograph on Admiral Pellew produced by the Teign Heritage Centre is now available to buy in the Canonteign Falls Gift Shop, along with other related gifts including the memoirs of Paul Pellew, the current Viscount Exmouth: " A Prisoner of Fortune: My Strange World" (Matador, 2013).
Devon Wildlife Trust
We have long enjoyed an association with Devon Wildlife Trust, in particular in relation to our school visits.
The RSPB has provided Canonteign with colourful and informative identification boards which are displayed throughout our walks to help our visitors identify the wide variety of woodland birds and wildfowl at Canonteign. If you are very lucky, you might even see a kingfisher down at the lower lakes, in amongst our many dragonfly in summer.
