Strange Stories from Devon

By R.A. Lauder & M. Williams

Bodmin: Bossiney Books (1982)

Indexed by Michael Steer

This is a nicely produced book about Devon's strange places and strange characters; the man they couldn't hang, the Lynmouth disaster and a mysterious house are just some of the stories. Did King Arthur really visit North Devon? Who was the bigger rogue; Carew or Froude? The authors pose many such questions.
