Quick Guide to Pubs Past & Present

By |2021-08-10T15:03:34+01:00May 15th, 2021|

Quick Guide to Pubs Past and Present Topsham pubs have always offered a warm welcome to travellers. In the 18th century there were over 40 of them, reflecting the rough and ready seaport Topsham was back then. In the late 1900s, Exeter University students did a ‘Topsham 10’ pub crawl as a rite of passage. You can’t drink a pint in 10 pubs any more, let alone 40, but you can follow a trail of buildings that were once inns and public houses. Not quite a pub crawl, [...]

Sing it Out! – Topsham’s Going Green

By |2021-05-11T21:36:17+01:00May 11th, 2021|

Residents and visitors in Topsham buy an estimated 10,000 takeaway drinks weekly during the busiest times of the year, with most of those single-use cups ending up in bins and then in landfill or incinerated. Now people are being encouraged to either bring their own reusable cup or buy a stylish and eco-friendly Love Topsham [...]

By |2021-03-23T16:25:20+00:00March 9th, 2021|

Cornwall - it’s lovely isn’t it? The coves, the coastal path, the mystique and history of smugglers and tin miners, and of course the very 21st century foodie destinations. But from London, or the Midlands, let alone anywhere further north, the beautiful county of Cornwall is … well … it’s a bit far, isn’t it? So here’s an idea. Why not stop off - for an hour or two, or even overnight - in a place that’s just as lovely, steeped in history and charm, where you can break [...]
