Find Us is about helping locals and visitors find all the amazing shops and businesses that are here in our town centre.

Barnstaple Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

BID Barnstaple wants to create end of street maps that will show all the businesses in each street and where they are situated. This information will help guide people around the town. In addition we also want to increase the number of large maps in car parks, bus station and railway station and other welcome points to the town. The map is colour coded to show the various sections e.g. bright pink for Fashion and the street map is colour coded to match the coloured arrows on the newly installed signposts

What we'll deliver:

  • We will re-create the maps both in a whole form and then in sections relevant to each street.

Why it's a great idea:

We know that visitors already find the paper versions of our maps extremely useful- this idea is an extension on that and serves to both help the visitor as well as the local businesses in highlighting where they are situated and what they have to offer. The frames are designed to be vandal proof and the material the maps are printed on is graffiti proof.

Steps to get it done:

  • We have created the map -a local design company will design it and install it.
