Yealmpton is a village in Devon. It is on the A379 Plymouth to Kingsbridge road and is about 8 miles (13 km) from Plymouth. It derives its name from the River Yealm that flows through the village. Yealmpton is home to a 400 year-old stone cottage, where it is said, a version of the famous rhyme Old Mother Hubbard was written by Sarah Catherine Martin. It is also the site of Kitley Caves where green marble was quarried; there is an arch of it in the British Museum.

Viridor Waste Management Ltd have withdrawn their application to the Environment Agency for an environmental permit for landfill at the New England Quarry site near Ivybridge.

DCC have also refused planning permission for both activities at the site.
