Photos of Devon, England
Devon is a photographer's delight; a beautiful coastline and rolling countryside dotted with archetypal English villages. It is also a county of contrasts with two historic cities straddling some of the most remote countryside in England.
The Ashburton Parish Church of St Andrew has an impressive exterior with a 92 feet high tower. Near the base of this tower is the grave of a French prisoner of war who died in 1815, at the very end of the Napoleonic Wars. The church was originally erected in the 12th century but entirely rebuilt in the 15th century. There is a memorial to Lord Dunning penned by his friend Samuel Johnson and an ancient Parish Chest in the North Transept Chapel.
There are many lovely old buildings in this ancient stannary town of Ashburton which dates from Saxon times and has grown along the banks of the River Ashburn and its tributary the Balland Stream.
