Okehampton, a settlement where two moorland rivers meet was an ideal stopping place on the way to Cornwall for travellers. This market town sits under Dartmoor's northern edge and has a wonderful history. Here Paul Rendell has picked some photographs which tell part of this history including the military, the railway, and of course the shops. There are some fine buildings like the town hall and a lovely riverside park. This pictorial record helps the reader to learn the history of this market town of Okehampton which has witnessed many changes over the years. The biggest changes have been in the last few years as more houses are being built. Our history is getting lost so enjoy looking back.
