Delve back in time with the Crediton history trail and find out all about this historic town – from the Great Fire of 1743 to the day elephants came to town!

Creedy the cat’s two-mile trail around the town takes you to a number of historic sites to find out interesting facts, as well as exploring Crediton at the same time.

Crack the 18 questions and claim your Trailblazer badge from any of the outlets below.

The trail starts from Crediton railway station (see bottom-right of map). Look up train times.
