The Bakehouse Centre was converted from a bake house and two cottages to house today's Museum & Information Centre, reflecting the early origins of Braunton, from the arrival of St. Brannock from South Wales in the sixth century, through to the agricultural and later maritime heritage.
The Great Field, one of only two early Saxon strip-farming systems in England is close by and even more remarkable, it's still in operation today!
While you are here why not visit the vantage point on Beacon Hill, and be rewarded with wonderful views of the whole area including Braunton Burrows, Appledore and the estuaries of the Taw and the Torridge.
Information services of the local attractions and activities are now available here.
We are now responsible for running the Visit Braunton website too.
