Devon, Day 8: Totnes





Our other stop in Devon was the market town of Totnes.    My mother was interested in visiting because it's a Transition Town.   

It's a really neat old town.    The main street (see the gate across it in the first picture) is a crazy one lane street up a steep hill.    Lorries were driving on it.    Those people were insane!

At the top of a hill is Totnes Castle, which was originally built in Norman times (in the fourth picture, the stone walls in the center of the courtyard are the footprint for that original tower).    It's now run by English Heritage.     There are many stairs to get up it, but the views of the surrounds and the River Dart are worth it.
