MARTINHOE IN WHITE'S DIRECTORY OF 1850
Hunters Inn Martinhoe

Hunter's Inn Martinhoe.

Snuggled deep in a valley the Inn lies between Ilfracombe and Heddon' s Mouth. Taken in the early years of the 20th century -and not a motor car in sight.

From our postcard collection.

 

Martinhoe, a picturesque village, on the coast of the Bristol Channel, 3 miles W of Lynton, is sheltered on the south by the lofty moorland hills, rising above the rocky valleys of several small rivulets.

 

Sir Robert George Throckmoreton, Bart. is lord of the manor and owner of a great part of the soil, and the rest belongs to C. Bailey Esq. and a few smaller owners. The church (St. Martin) is an antique fabric with a tower and two bells.  The rectory is in the patronage of the Rev. John Pike, and incumbency of the Rev. Joseph Dovell MA who has 35 acres of glebe and a neat residence which was new-fronted in 1843. The poor have 5s a year.
