Telling Our Stories has engaged with 3 towns and 1 city across Mid and North Devon.

In 2012 – 13 we focused on Exeter.

In 2019 – 20, we have been working in BidefordOkehampton and Tiverton.

Our focus towns are each very different. They include: Exeter, the county’s capital; Tiverton, a centre of industry / manufacturing; Bideford, a port town; and Okehampton, an agricultural market town on the edge of Dartmoor.

These choices are deliberate – we have chosen to work in places which represent the full spread of Devon’s history: rural and urban, large and small. In Bideford, Okehampton and Tiverton, we have also involved participants from the villages and hamlets surrounding the towns.

In future years, we hope to expand to consider other towns, villages and cities.
