(No reviews yet) Write a Review
North Devon is famous for its rugged coastline and beautiful beaches, its dramatic moorland scenery and much more. The region is filled with places of both natural and man-made appeal. This book takes the reader on a fascinating journey through the many delights of the area. Along the coast, from the spectacular Hartland Point where land meets the Atlantic Ocean, to the twin villages of Lynton and Lynmouth on the edge of Exmoor, there are a myriad of fascinating places to visit, including the fishing village of Clovelly with its steep streets down to the harbour and the ancient ports of Bideford and Barnstaple. Inland, North Devon has many diverse attractions, from the ancient landscape of Exmoor, forests and rural countryside, attractive market towns and villages, historic buildings and magnificent country houses and gardens. In 50 Gems of North Devon local authors Denise Holton and Elizabeth J. Hammett explore the many places and their history that make this part of the country so special.
AUTHOR: Denise Holton is a writer and local historian and has lived in North Devon for over 25 years. She worked for the Town Council for 16 years and was the manager of Barnstaple Heritage Centre for most of that time.

Elizabeth was born and educated in Barnstaple. Her ancestors have lived in the town for at least 150 years and in North Devon for centuries. She has been interested in history for as long as she can remember and has written several articles, as well as the previous book on Barnstaple's history with co-author Denise Holton. She has been a volunteer at Barnstaple Heritage Centre for 13 years. Her work there includes leading tours of Barnstaple and researching and writing about the town's history.
