New display shows the changing face of Honiton.

This week marks the start of Honiton’s second antiques festival which kicked off today (Monday).

The event runs from November 12-17 and proved a huge success last year - attracting many visitors to the town. Getting the event under way was local historian Terry Darrant and PCSO Barry Redford, a keen postcard collector, who have put together an exhibition at Honiton Library.

The display, Honiton Then and Now, is made up of a collection of postcards and photographs showing how the town’s shops have changed over the years.

It will be at the library all week.
