Barnstaple Though Time.

Barnstaple Though Time.


Take a journey through time with our interactive photo slider. Move the sliders from left to right to see the changes.

Denise Holton and Elizabeth Hammett’s book, Barnstaple Through Time, takes the reader on a trip in to the past and shows how the town has changed over the years.

Simply move the sliders from left to right to view the then-and-now pictures.

The early photograph of the riverfront, as seen from the bridge, is one of the few to show a ship moored near Queen Anne’s Walk. This is also one of the few taken before the extension of the railway line to Ilfracombe.

Historic photos and information courtesy of Denise Holton and Elizabeth Hemmett. Barnstaple Through Time is available to order here. If you are interested in Devon nostalgia then why not join our Facebook Page, Devon Memories.
