The district has a further fame through Richard Blackmore's novel, Lorna Doone.
Blackmore's novel Lorna Doone; Watersmeet, where two streams, the Tavy and Walkham, join amid wild and beautiful scenery; and the Valley of Rocks, a narrow glen strewn with immense boulders.
Walking along the path Lorna spotted a female cirl bunting, a species starting to spread from their stronghold near Prawle Point.
Lorna Want is pretty and blond and sings nicely, which is really all the badly-written role of the preacher's daughter allows for.
Lorna plays both the clarsach and the Scottish fiddle and the Smith's excellent acoustics made the most of her delightful music.
