Devon in the 1920’s

Devon History Society is collaborating with the Devon Family History Society and the South West Heritage Trust on a new research project to explore what life was like in Devon in the 1920s. We are interested in hearing from anyone whose family lived in Devon during that period and who have memories to share. We’d also like to hear from individuals or groups who might be interested in researching what was happening in their community, or in a particular topic. Our key themes for topic-based research are:

  • The Aftermath of the First World War
  • Growing up
  • Rural Life
  • Holidays and Leisure
  • Progress and Technology

If you are interested in sharing information or being part of the research project in any way please get in touch with the research co-ordinator, Julia Neville, at
