Kingsbridge

A small market town in Devon serving a rich farming area known as South Hams.  A busy port until the nineteenth century, its early trade was founded on wool and shipbuilding.  Other industries have included brewing and cider making, while a steamer service operated to Plymouth until the nineteenth century. Its importance as a port has declined but it continues to thrive as a shopping, tourist and boating centre. The map below shows the town of Kingsbridge as it was in the mid twentieth century.
