About Totnes

People have been living in the landscape around Totnes since the Neolithic times, about 6000 years ago . Ancient trackways forded the Dart River and climbed the hill on which the town now stands. During the Middle Ages, everyone believed that Totnes was where the mythical Brutus of Troy first landed, when he sailed here and founded the British race. Although the story is purely fictitious, many early settlers of Britain did arrive in this area. During the Tudor period, Totnes was one of the 20 wealthiest towns in England. During the Civil War, Totnes was visited by both Oliver Cromwell and King Charles I during their campaigns.
