Business, Commerce & Employment Prospects

Langdons Business Park is the only industrialised area within Clyst St. Mary.

There is also a large office complex in Winslade Park, the site of an old school. The complex was initially developed by the London & Manchester group, later this site was taken over by the Friends Provident group. Apart from the refubishment of the old school (Winslade House) in the 1970's there was a development of newer buildings behind. These house the Devon region DEFRA offices (in Clyst House). Winslade Park is the name for the grounds containing Winslade House, Clyst House and the other facilities here.
