Until comparatively recently Coldridge was spelt Coleridge. According to the historian, Risdon, who completed his Survey of the County Of Devon about three hundred years ago, the name is derived from the poorness of the soil. It is thought that it was once a large wooded area. The Readers Digest Complete Atlas of the British Isles gives Coldridge as meaning Charcoal Ridge. If it was once heavily wooded, they could both be right!
