Barnstaple’s a fascinating place, certainly the lie of the land is unusual and its historic background invites further investigation. Devonshire magazine will be revisiting this old town situated on the river Taw estuary, later in 2015. If you have any input to make for this page on Barnstaple, we’d be interested to hear from you.
