Barnstaple is a town and civil parish in the local government district of North Devon in the county of Devon.
It is the main town of the district and claims to be the oldest borough in the UK. It was founded at the lowest crossing point of the River Taw, about 3 miles from the Taw’s seafall at the Bristol Channel. By the time of the Domesday Book, Barnstaple had its own mint. Its size and wealth in the Middle Ages was based on it being within the staple, a staple port licensed to export wool, and its importance is still obvious in the town’s name. The wool trade was further aided by the town’s excellent port, with five ships being sent in 1588 to aid the fight against the Spanish Armada.
It was one of the boroughs reformed by the Municipal Reform Act 1835. Since 1974, it has been a civil parish with a town council.It has a population of 34,000.
A wooden castle was built by Geoffrey de Mowbray, Bishop of Coutances in the 11th century, clearing houses to make room for it. Juhel of Totnes (Judhael) later lived in the castle and established a priory just outside its walls. The castle’s first stone buildings were probably erected by Henry de Tracey, a strong supporter of King Stephen. In 1228, the Sheriff of Devon had the walls of the castle reduced to a height of 10 ft. By the time of the death of the last Henry de Tracey in 1274, the castle was beginning to decay. The fabric of the castle was used in the construction of other buildings and by 1326 the castle was a ruin. The remaining walls blew down in a storm in 1601.Now only the tree covered motte remains.
Barnstaple has been the major market for North Devon since Saxon times. Demands for health regulation of its food market in Victorian times saw the construction in 1855 to 1856 of the town’s Pannier Market, originally known as the Vegetable Market and designed by R D Gould. The building has a high glass and timber roof on iron columns. At 107 yrd long, it runs the length of Butchers Row. Market days are Monday – Crafts and General (April to December), Tuesday – General and Produce (all year), Wednesday – Arts Collectables and Books, Thursday – Crafts and General, Friday – General and Produce and Saturday – General and Produce.
Barnstaple is twinned with Barnstable, Massachusetts in the USA, Uelzen in Germany, Susa in Italy and Trouville-sur-Mer in France.

I would definitely recommend you to anybody in the future." Les & Jackie Eales
