Barnstaple is a large town in the county of Devon, England. It is a former river-port, situated on the banks of the River Taw, 34 miles northwest of Exeter.
Barnstaple claims to be the UK's oldest borough with a charter given in 930AD by King Aethelstan. By 1086, when the Domesday Book was being compiled, it already had its own mint and had been a staple port exporting wool since the early Middle Ages.
Long Bridge (a Grade I listed building) was built across the river in 1280 and still carries traffic today.
