Description: Tavistock boasts many wonderful historic structures, ranging from the surviving remnants of Tavistock Abbey through to early twentieth-century ‘Arts and Crafts’ buildings. Perhaps the best known among them are the magnificent mid-nineteenth-century Town Hall and the famous Pannier Market, both part of the Duke of Bedford’s grand plan to reshape the town. The Duke’s patronage also drew many renowned architects to Tavistock, such as Sir Jeffrey Wyattville, John Foulston, Henry Clutton and Charles Fowler. Their influence can be seen throughout the town, especially in many of the 350 listed buildings which line Tavistock’s streets. This guided walk will introduce you to the town’s fascinating and varied built heritage – an architectural treat.
The walk will be approximately 90 minutes and about 1 mile.
