Distance (miles)2

'This tour will guide you around some of Barnstaple’s interesting buildings and monuments, helping to piece together the story of a town that is well over 1000 years old.'

The attraction on the Strand, which offers visitors the chance to discover 1,000 years of Barnstaple history, has fallen victim to the town council’s "Better Barnstaple" plan.
