Barnstaple The Essential
Interesting
Barnstaple received a royal charter in AD 930 and its 13C parish church is famous for its funerary monuments and slender lead-covered spire. The 17C Horwood Almshouses and Alice Horwood School have attractive wooden mullioned windows. The 19C Guildhall includes the oak-panelled Dodderidge Parlour, in which the town's plate collection is displayed. The Museum of North Devon (The Square) traces the history of the surrounding area.
