Topsham remains an estuary town of nationwide renown, reflected in its characterful period cottages and houses, perfectly blended with a range of more modern homes. Recently named by The Sunday Times as the best place to live in the South West of England. Its excellent amenities range from a splendid individual-styled parade of shops to, churches, restaurants, several pubs, a school and a bowling and sailing club. The town was listed at the time of Domesday as 'Topeshant' and flourished as an estuary port for nigh on five centuries. Topsham also became world-renowned for ship-building reaching its zenith between 1800 and 1870.
