Devon has been occupied by humans for many thousands of years. Indeed, human remains from as many as 40,000 years ago have been found in the region, while Romans and Anglo-Saxons also called the region home.

In the past, Devon's core industries included farming, fishing and mining, while the seaside resorts brought significant wealth to the area in their heydays.

These days, the region is still heavily reliant on agriculture and dairy, producing products like milk and cheese, as well as the famous Devonshire cream.

A number of well-known companies can be found in the area, including the Wrigley chewing gum company and Beverage Brands, which makes WKD vodka.
