"Down in the Shires, where the Hobbitses live"............................................ Oops wrong Shire

The country of Devon (Devonshire) is in the south west of Britain. You have to drive though Devon to reach Cornwall. I feel very lucky to live in such a beautiful county of England, there are many beautiful contrasting areas to explore here.

From the empty wilderness of Dartmoor with its beautiful ancient villages such as Widdicombe, to the "Kiss me Quick" seaside town of Paignton to beautiful woodland & coastal areas to great surfing of Woolacombe to ancient market towns like Tavistock to Historical and working ports of Brixham, Plymouth & Dartmouth. I could go on..................... But I think you get the picture!

    "It's a dangerous business, going out of your door. You step into the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to." Thanks for a glimpse at your hometown. I think I'm quite ready for another adventure.

    From BILLYDUSK very nice site. You have put a lot into your pages, and kindly think of others when giving information. I'm certainly going to visit beautiful Devon soon. From Will Jones, West Sussex.

    Thanks for a delightful tour of Devon, Nicola. Pebbly beaches, travelling markets, steam engines, para jumping ... sounds like a fun trip to do. Not forgeting the Christie home ... been a huge fan of Poirot :)
