The Braunton Museum reflects the early beginnings of the town from the arrival of St Brannock from South Wales in the 6th Century, through to its agricultural and later maritime heritage, including the domestic and family histories of its inhabitants. Nearby you will find the Great Field, this is a living example of one only two early Saxon strip-farming systems remaining in England and is still operational today! Also, why not visit the vantage point of Beacon Hill, here you will see panoramic views of the whole area including Braunton Burrow, Appledore and the Taw and Torridge estuary. The Museum lies adjacent to a free car park.
