Clovelly North Devon

This is the lovely village of Clovelley in North Devon, Tony and I visited here when we were on holiday it is so pretty but it nearly killed me getting back up the street is so steep there are no motor vehicles and if you look carefully at the photo on the right you will see haow they transport everything it is a wooden sledge and all deliveries have to be broought down on these across the cobbles. Charles Kingsley lived in Clovelley as a child and returned as an adult many times, he wrote' Westward Ho!' while staying in the village and the village also inspired him to write 'The Water Babies'

You could have used the land rover service which runs from the beach up the back of the houses to the top. I did believe me its so much easier than walking, even my daughter would not walk back up.
