Barnstaple History Group

Welcome to Barnstaple History Group 

We are a friendly group of people who have many and varied interests in Barnstaple history. The aim of the group is to establish a more detailed and wider understanding of the history of Barnstaple in terms of: 

  • People who live or have lived here.

  • Events that have taken place.

  • The buildings and landscape, both past and present.

We meet on the first Saturday in every month (excluding January) in Barnstaple Library in the Henry Williamson Room, next to the Record Office on the second floor. 2.00-4.00pm

A lift is available for those who find stairs difficult.

                 We look forward to meeting you!



Due to the Coronavirus all meetings of the Barnstaple History Group, held in the Henry Williamson Room, have been cancelled for three months. 

We look forward to seeing everyone again in July.
