Horwood Alms Houses




“Before” and “After” – drag the vertical slider left & right to reveal/hide what’s underneath

Tucked away off of Church Lane in the middle of Barnstaple’s town centre – Horwood Alms Houses. Here’s a Then & Now composite of them… Never particularly easy taking these photos when you’ve got buildings so close either side, but I think it’s just about OK …. I hope you like it!  JP.

Vintage Film of Train Passing Through Barnstaple Town Station

Short clip from the BFI of a train going over the old railway bridge in 1898, passing through the old Barnstaple town station.

Quite fascinating to see moving pictures from very nearly 120 years ago. Plenty of architecture still recognisable today!
