The small and spruce old town of Totnes stands at the furthest navigable point on the River Dart. The narrow main street winds around brick and stone houses of faded hues evoking the wealth of its 16C and 17C merchants. Totnes's great period of prosperity was from 1550 to 1650, when it controlled the sea trade for cloth and tin to Spain and France.
