HOW TO FIND IT At the bottom of Totnes' Fore Street, cross the road by the Royal Seven Stars towards the river and Bridge Terrace is immediately in front of you. The entrance is to the right of the garage gates. 

TOTNES The unique and charming market town of Totnes sits above the River Dart in the heart of the South Hams. The town is one of Devon's gems, the birthplace of the Transition Town movement in England and nominated in British Airways' HighLife magazine as one of the world's top ten funky towns. Full of colour and character, its atmosphere is cosmopolitan with a West Country flavour and those looking for history, alternative therapies and beautiful countryside will find it in and around Totnes. The town is said to have more listed buildings per head of the population than anywhere else in Britain. With a twice-weekly market and many small independent shops, it is well-known for ethical products, wholefoods and fair trade goods. It is the second oldest borough in England, with an ancient Guildhall and Church, a Norman Castle and its North and East Gates. There is a well-regarded community college and a mainline railway station; and Dartmoor, Dartington, the South Hams - with its fine beaches - are within easy reach.
