Visiting Clovelly

Clovelly is timeless 

The village remains a fully functioning working village that clings to a 400 foot cliff in North Devon, overlooking Bideford bay. It has no vehicular traffic on its steeply cobbled street, just a few donkeys, that are now retired,  and sledges. The man-powered sledges transport all goods to and from the village, from groceries to furniture. Donkeys used to be the main form of transport for centuries, but now mainly give children rides during the summer or can be seen posing for photographs around the village. .
