The Shambles stood in the High Street from the fifteenth to the nineteenth century; it was a group of buildings which stood in the middle of the widest part of the High Street near the Angel Inn. Moving the slider reveals how The Shambles has transformed over the centuries in to today’s modern street market.

In New Street C. 1887, firemen attended this major fire. Few of Honiton’s ancient buildings remain due to a number of major destructive fires throughout its history. Picture then and now as seen from the railway bridge.

The Exeter Road toll house and gate, also known as ‘Turks Head Gate’, seen here in 1860 and how it looks today.
