Have a go at our fantastic interactive photo slider showing how Bideford has changed over the last century. Move the sliders from left to right to reveal the differences over time.

Bideford Through Time is a fascinating book looking at how the face of Bideford has changed over the last 150 years.

The authors Peter Christie and Graham Hobbs sourced many of the old Bideford photos from the community and captured the modern day images themselves from the same position.

These interactive photo-sliders are great at showing how the locations around the market town have altered over the years. Simply move the sliders from left to right to view the ‘then’ and ‘now’ pictures.

All historic photos and information are courtesy of Peter Christie and Graham Hobbs.

Barnstaple Through Time is printed by Amberley Publishing and is available to order here.
