Totnes has a worldwide reputation as one of the founder towns of the global Transition Network. Transition Town Totnes (TTT) is a dynamic, community-led and run charity that exists to strengthen the local economy and build resilience for a future with less cheap energy, financial uncertainty and a changing climate. TTT has started or helped develop a wide range of projects that actively build community around local food, the local economy, housing, energy, transport, the arts and health and wellbeing.

Many people come to Totnes wanting to find out more about TTT and meet the people involved. The best way to do this is to come to an event, or join a walking tour where you can visit some projects and gain a fun and interactive insight into the world’s first Transition Town.

Classic English wines are produced at Sharpham vineyard as a result of a happy marriage of soil, climate and grape variety known as terroir, and nature has bestowed her gifts freely upon us here at Sharpham. In the winery, we employ both New World and traditional techniques to best develop our unique regional characteristics. Our tally of International Awards confirms our position as one of England's foremost quality wine producers. We invite you to visit, sample, and make up your own minds about our fine English wine. Quality, taste and excellence are the enduring hallmarks of our award-winning range of English cheeses. We combine meticulous attention to hygiene with traditional methods including cutting, moulding and turning, all performed entirely by hand.

Pagoda Interiors

We have been running our family business since 2011 and are located in The Narrows of the historic market town of Totnes, South Devon. Our business ethos is based on selling ethical products; these include fair trade, ethically sourced, recycled, locally made and UK made.  We spend a lot of time undertaking research about the makers and products before we stock them in our shop. We are always on the look out for new and contemporary looking homewares and gifts and by doing this we think that we have established ourselves on the high street as offering that 'something different' to the norm or latest trends. We received a Gold Award for Best Fairtrade Retailer - Multiple Products in the 2017 South West Fair Trade Business Awards.  We have also won Gold in 2015 and Silver in 2016. We are open Monday to Saturday 10am to 5pm - including Bank Holidays.
