“The buildings of Topsham, from the 16th century to the 19th, are so varied, numerous, and individual, that one cannot even begin to catalogue them. It is quite the most rewarding small town in Devon for the student of local styles in building, and probably one of the most interesting in England. The whole feeling of the water-front is remarkable: the decaying shipyards, the rotting hulks on the river mud, the derelict warehouses, nail factories, and quays, the multitudinous cats, the wonderful river views.”
by W.G.Hoskins (1954)

Welcome to the Topsham Society website. The Society regrets that it is proving impossible to recruit new committee members. There are now too few active committee members for the Society to continue to function as it has in the past. There is no prospect of there being an evening lecture programme once current restrictions end.
