Devon - Clovelly
Clovelly is a
village in the Torridge district of Devon, England. It is a major
tourist attraction, famous for its history and beauty, its extremely
steep car-free cobbled main street, donkeys and its location looking
out over the Bristol Channel. Thick woods shelter it and render the
climate so mild that even tender plants flourish. As of the 2001
Census, the ward of Clovelly Bay, including Clovelly, had a total
population of 1,616.
Clovelly used to be a fishing village and in 1901 had a population
of 621. It is a cluster of wattle and daub cottages on the sides of
a rocky cleft; its steep main street descends 400 feet (120 m) to
the pier, too steeply to allow wheeled traffic. Sledges are used for
the movement of goods. The quaint street is lined with houses, a
small number of shops, a cafe and a public house. All Saints'
Church, restored in 1866, is late Norman, containing several
monuments to the Cary family, Lords of the Manor for 600 years.
