Barnstaple House Removals
Barnstaple is the main town of North Devon. It is a former river-port, located at the lowest crossing-point of the River Taw, flowing into the Bristol Channel.
The town has an eclectic mix of architectural style, with 19th century being the most predominant. St Anne’s Chapel, in the central churchyard, is a shining example of an ancient building that has survived the years, with a little makeover in 2012.
Barnstaple Castle didn’t fare as well. The wooden castle was built in the 11th century. Sadly the castle decayed over the years and wood was taken from the structure for other buildings. Today, only trees cover motte remains.
