For the visitor, Bampton is ideally sited in rural Devon, and is at the centre of an area where there is much to do and explore. The whole of the centre of the town is a conservation area, and there are almost 100 listed buildings and other objects within the parish.

Bampton in DevonOur little town has a surprising range of local amenities - shops, pubs, restaurants, businesses, and places to stay. It also has quite a history from the Romans to its early Saxon origins, the Norman castle, the wool and pony trade, the 12th century church, the quarrying of the local stone; now it is a thriving centre used by local villagers and visitors.

Bampton White Horse - interiorOn Friday 20th September at 7pm we have the opening of the new Exhibition about Bampton's Historic Buildings. There is a wealth of interesting material where you can learn a lot about buildings you walk by but don't know the story of their past.


Also a new Listening Project will have recodings of local people and their memories of Bampton in earlier times which bring the whole scene to life.


On the right is an old postcard of the interior of the White Horse. It was dead posh in Edwardian times!
