Solicitors in Barnstaple


Founded on the North Devon Coast at the lowest crossing on the River Taw, Barnstaple lays claim to being one of the oldest boroughs in the United Kingdom. Over the centuries Barnstaple has played a vital role in generating income for the region, most notably with the export of wool and pottery.

Today Barnstaple retains its local importance as the main administrative hub for North Devon.

The town still holds the largest market in the area, something which has not changed in over a thousand years; the name Barnstaple is derived from the Old English, Bar, meaning the mouth of the River, and Staple, which was a Saxon term for a market town.

Barnstaple’s income is now heavily supplemented by tourism as well as local industry, agriculture and farming.

Situated near a host of popular surfing and leisure beaches and on the door step Exmoor, Barnstaple is considered a central point for visitors looking to explore all that North Devon has to offer.
