Clovelly

  1. 2. Clovelly is a village in the Torridge district of Devon, England. It is 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. Clovelly 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. A ll Saints‘ Church, restored in 1866, is late Norman, containing several monuments to the Cary family, Lords of the Manor for 600 years. Surprisingly, it has a Norman porch, a Jacobean pulpit and a monument to the novelist Charles Kingsley, author of Westward Ho, who lived in Clovelly as a child. Unusually, the village is still privately owned and has been associated with only three families since the middle of the 13th century, nearly 800 years. The scenery is famous for its richness of colour, especially in the grounds of Clovelly Court and along The Hobby, a road cut through the woods and overlooking the sea.
