Left Dawlish this morning and stopped off at Totnes, on the river Dart. I saw a comment online describing it as quirky. .. The “Welcome to Totnes” sign as you enter town has the usual “Twinned with..” And a slightly different “Twinned with Area 51, Nevada”. Oh dear.
Its claims to be an artsy community are certainly taken very seriously by the population.
Totnes is very laid back; an almost total absence of retail chains, lots of coffee shops & cafes selling all manner of vegetarian & vegan food, holistic medicines, and charity shops all blend together in the narrow high street. There were tie dye t-shirts, Tibetan beanie hats, kaftans, and one somewhat out of place army surplus store.
There was an error retrieving images from Instagram. An attempt will be remade in a few minutes.
