The Best Books about Devon!

Around and About Salcombe
By Chips Barber

Chips Barber

This little booklet is full of fascinating information about Salcombe, the southernmost town in Devon, and a world-famous sailing centre. Set in an area of unspoilt natural beauty, it is surrounded by green rolling hills, which drop steeply down to its magnificent estuary. Nearby are enormous and spectacular sea cliffs: a natural sheltered harbour with safe sandy coves, it is a Devonshire paradise. But there are those who came here in the past who may not have shared this opinion¿ four hundred years ago Salcombe was very different to the resort we see today; a report of the Quarter Sessions in 1607 singled it out as being "full of dissolute seafaring men, who murdered each other and buried them in the sands by night"!
