The 'Anglo-Saxon Chronicle entry for 893 tells us that the Danes 'besieged a fortress on the North Coast of Devon'

  W.G.Hoskins says this was Burridge Camp

" Burridge Camp is an iron age hillfort which became the burh of Pilton." from 'Exploring Saxon & norman England,'

As  to the strategic importance of Burridge Camp; Polwhele remarks on the fact of there being a regular chain of earthworks running from Barnstaple to the northeast... there are also numerous similar relics in the large and almost peninsular district of which Burridge Camp ( Barnstaple) may be called the key, and almost the only means of approach to.

***  'Barnstaple ....The suffix 'staple' refers to a market. ****** - leland

Barnstaple = Barn market =  Venta Berniae, the birthplace of St. Patrick

Site of the Battle (Siege) of Mount Badon

In his book 'Celts etc'  Kerslake speaks of Barnstaple being also a sphere of St. Brannock's work, and traces a connection between the names Bran and Barum.
