Default clovelly

16th century cottages at clovelly.
Unusually, the village is privately owned and has been by the same family since 1738. Their policy is to care for Clovelly and keep it in the style of the mid C19th. This involves much quality maintenance using traditional materials and craftmanship

Beautiful! I'm originally from North Devon, and my youngest sister still lives about 2 miles from Clovelly. I'm impressed that you got a picture without any grockles† … (Ah! I'll bet you used a filter…)

As another Devonian it's good to see somewhere local to me.

This shot has a great perspective and I don't think much should change there but it doesn't seem or something and then pulled back with some USM. I can't put my finger on it. If it wasn't for that section which is distracting me I would love this shot.

The harmonious slate roofs and cobble stone street descending to the coast appeal to me...promising a lovely stroll! Oh, I'd make quite a grockle* I suppose
