England’s Oldest Borough

Synopsis
The building of a new downstream bridge in Barnstaple, Devon, changes the landscape of one of the oldest boroughs in England.

Scenes show Barnstaples’s old buildings with their architectural features, traditional street names and their unique paving stones, and a typical antiques shop. Filmed in August 1994.
