Author: Denise Holton, Elizabeth Hammett

Secret Barnstaple goes behind the façade of the familiar to discover the lesser-known aspects of the town’s fascinating past. Barnstaple has many secrets, and as you stroll down its paths you are walking through streets steeped in history. Home of a Norman mint and a medieval centre of the woollen trade in its heyday, the town has long been key to Devonshire’s industry. There are clear reminders of the town’s past everywhere, waiting for you to stop, look and listen to their intriguing stories.

On a journey through this ancient town, local historians Denise Holton and Elizabeth Hammett tells these forgotten and untold tales. You may think that you know Barnstaple, but take another look around and you will find more than you could possibly imagine.
