Overview

We will show you how the town developed from early times to how the town traded by river and rail, contributed to 2 world wars, has a rich Civic and social life and much more. The earliest images of Totnes date from 1864 and follow events recorded in the photographs.

The digital A to Z database of over 60.000 images contains a vast range of subjects and places from Totnes and around South Devon. Plus the Dartington Rural Archive records a life long past of farming and villages.

Based at Town Mill by Morrisons carpark. Open on Tuesdays & Fridays – 10am to 4pm.
