Mon. - "The Harbours of Clovelly and Hartland are appended to the Port of Bideford. The former place is very curious and deserves observation. It is built on the Side of a steep Rock, to which the Houses seem joined like Pidgeon Huts against a Wall. At the bottom there is a small Pier. The Place is famous for the best Herrings taken in the Channel." - Watkin's Hist. of Bideford, p. 276.
