The waters around North Devon can be treacherous, and down the centuries Clovelly fishermen have risked their lives putting out to sea in pursuit of the herring shoals.

In days gone by, the wives and families of Clovelly fishermen would gather at the Look-Out, nervously watching the waves and darkening skies and hoping for a sight of their loved ones returning.
These days the Look-Out offers visitors the perfect vantage point where they can take a breather, and sit on the bench and watch the world go by. Overhead gulls glide by, and if you are particularly lucky you may see a peregrine falcon!
