Bits of Devon

Bratton Clovelly is a small village in West Devon
The community is made up of Devon 'born and bred' and those who have
moved into the area for work or due to its quiet rural beauty.
Local life is friendly and laid back with people stopping to pass the time as they move around the village.
The pace of life is gentle and things get done 'Dreckly' ~ which is
like 'Manyanha'
but not quite so urgent
