The pretty village of Braunton on the North Devon coast has a wealth of treasures that remain largely undiscovered byresidents and visitors alike. In addition to being at the core of the country's first newly-designated Biosphere Reserve, it boasts one of only two surviving medieval open strip field systems in England, a vibrant history of shipping and links with the sea, was once on the route of the bustling Barnstaple to Ilfracombe railway line, which carried 10,000 passengers per day at times and, thanks to the magnificent Braunton Burrows, is now reputed to be the most biodiverse parish in England. A lot can be said for the nation's largest village, and its richly varied past makes it an ideal place to explore.'
