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. 

Please use the tabs at the top of the page to navigate through the site - many tabs have a further drop down menu.

You can search the site below. I will be able to see the search terms that you use, but no other information about you.
