What might you want to see? Our amazing Elizabethan kitchen? Our spiral staircase made from a ship's mast? Or is it Totnes' illustrious son, Charles Babbage, who invented the first mechanical

Tracing your family tree? Wanting to find out more about an ancient house?
The Totnes Archives are a fascinating place to investigate the History of Totnes, come and have a leaf through our great reference libraries and ancient documents.
