Barnstaple a pleasant town, nestling in the valley of the River Taw, seven miles from the mouth of the river, has many claims to distinction: it is now and has been from time immemorial, the administrative, commercial and agricultural centre of North Devon. It was the first town with Borough status in the country to celebrate its 1000 year anniversary. It should be appreciated that these facts are not only of historical, but also, of sociological and aesthetic importance for they have influenced the way the town has grown and developed, to no small extent and is certainly responsible, in part to Barnstaple's unique character.

This progressive town has many attractions amongst which are its unique character, its indefinable air of age and dignity combined with all that is best of our modern world - a delicate blending of history and progress and of tradition and improvement. Over the years those responsible for the town have endeavoured to provide all the amenities which are to be expected on entering a new millennium, resulting in the town being well provided with leisure and recreational facilities. Its position makes Barnstaple the shopping centre for the whole of North Devon and its major shopping areas combine a blend of national stores and local family businesses.

Green Lanes, a large modern shopping mall, adjoins the High Street. Additionally, the out - of - town shopping areas continue to expand, all this enterprise showing that Barnstaple is at the centre of a thriving, vibrant economy.

A most significant factor in the town's development is its position as the centre of a great tourist industry. The town is the centre of North Devon with roads from it leading to Ilfracombe, Lynton, Taunton, Tiverton, Exeter and Bideford. In spite of its important position the town remains largely unspoilt and is one of the most delightful country towns in England deservedly popular as a place of residence.
