This website has some of my research into my home town of Ashburton, Devon, UK

Not forgetting the photographs, research and memories contributed by people who have a connection - old or new - to this terrific place. To all of them my grateful thanks. I am interested in all aspects of the town's history pre-1980, and love to hear from anyone who has information or photographs. To contact me go to the 'About me' page.
