North and South Devon in Contrast

Trans. Devon Assoc., vol 10 (1878), pp. 269-275.


Rev. Treasurer Hawker

Prepared by Michael Steer

Hawker's paper, presented at the Association's July 1878 Paignton meeting, examines similarities and differences between Devon's North and South. The South located on the English Channel comprises the gentle, pastoral coastline of the Exe estuary, Torbay, the South Hams including Dartmouth, and also Exeter, and Plymouth. North Devon is very different. Whereas South Devon is soft and gentle, North Devon has a very raw, cut-throat coastline, with Bideford, Barnstaple, Torrington and Ilfracombe as its major towns. And as well rugged Exmoor. Google with the Archive Organization has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries.
