The exit from the A38 into Ashburton from Plymouth is called Pear Tree. This photo is of the Pear Tree which marks the entrance to this Ancient, Medieval, Stannary Town which is also a modern bustling Town. This section contains a few of my images of this little gem of a place.
North Street where medieval buildings such as Church's, where Fairfax stayed, and The "pack of cards" House with hanging slates house modern businesses.
