Barnstaple Life – Vintage cine footage shot by Walter Parsley in the early to mid 1960s.

Walter was landlord of Mugfords (The Golden Lion Tap) at the time,  and obviously enjoyed using his camera from his front doorstep.

I’m going to guess that this footage was shot not long after the Long Bridge was re-opened after the widening works that were featured in this first video: Barnstaple Long Bridge, since the main focus seems to be the roundabout at the end of the Long Bridge, which would have been a brand-spanking new layout at the time.
