Introducing Totnes & Around
The delightful little town of Totnes has been something of a hippy haven since the 1960s, and its artistic connections continue thanks to the nearby Dartington College of Arts, a couple of miles up the road from the town. But the history of Totnes stretches back much further than the summer of love; a well-preserved Norman keep stands guard on a hilltop above town, and the main street is lined with elegant Tudor and Elizabethan buildings that hint at Totnes’ history as a mercantile town. In fact, tiny Totnes has a higher percentage of listed buildings than anywhere in Britain.
