Tourist's Guide to North Devon - R. N. Worth

Excerpt from Tourist's Guide to North Devon: And the Exmoor District

This Guide-book deals, not only with North Devon proper, but with the portion of Somerset containing the ancient Forest of Exmoor, which projects like a huge promontory into the North of Devon, and which, although politically separated from the latter county, is geographically essentially Devonian, and moreover is traversed in whole or in part by two of the main tourist routes with which we have to deal. The railway system not being extended in the same proportions in North Devon as in South, coach roads and walking routes are of greater relative importance; and it has been found desirable, to suit the convenience of the traveller, to arrange the various excursions, irrespective of their character, in general topographical order. As in the writer's 'South Devon,' "throughout the aim has been to give the tourist the greatest amount of practically useful information, brought down to the latest moment, and condensed into the smallest compass," - he trusts that his 'Guide to North Devon' may meet with the same kindly welcome and prove as widely acceptable as his 'Guide to South Devon.' More he could neither hope nor wish; and he gladly takes this opportunity of thanking his friends and readers for an appreciation and support which have far exceeded his most sanguine expectations.
