The North Devon town of Barnstaple was once a busy trading port - even boasting its own shipyards until the early 20th century - and an important centre of the wool trade. Beginning with an historical tour, this portrait of Barnstaple draws on the memories of local people to examine the many industries in the area, including lace and glove making, and the social life of the town.

This is one of the Halsgrove Community History series that uses archive photographs to look at the lives of small communities and how they have changed over the centuries.
