End of the line for Barnstaple fishing shop

North Devon Angling Centre in Boutport Street has closed down.

NORTH Devon Angling Centre in Barnstaple has closed down after four years in the town.

Owners Harry Bird and Teresa Saunders said they could no longer afford to keep the Boutport Street shop open and its doors were due to close for the final time yesterday (Tuesday).

They said they would like to thank all their loyal customers for their support.

The shop first opened in Combe Martin and later moved to its Barnstaple premises.
