Barnstaple lies on the River Taw estuary some 5 miles from the sea. At the point where the River Yeo meets the Taw the town of Barnstaple was born. the date of the town's origin has long been the subject of historical argument. however, it boldly and with great certainty celebrated its millennium in 1930. For many centuries Barnstaple was prominent in the wool industry and was a busy port for trade and commerce. up to the early-twentieth century it even had its own shipyard, vessels and docks at Rolle Quay and Castle Quay until 1960.
