Anglais The A-Z of Curious Devon

À propos

The lifestyles of the people of Devon have traditionally been as diverse as its spectacular scenery. Little wonder then, that the county's curious stories are so numerous and so varied. A train trapped in a giant snow drift in Devon's worst blizzard; ancient Phoenician myths from Hartland; the Devon origins of British banking; Lapford's murderous parson; Exeter FC's game against the Brazil; the strange origins of well-known sayings; Devon's ill-fated involvement in D-Day at Slapton Sands; black magic on Dartmoor; the oldest bakery in the world in Plymouth; visitations by the Devil in South Devon; the four great fires of Crediton; architectural curiosities, witchcraft, heroes, piracy, record breakers, villains and eccentrics.
