|Study Area||Bratton Clovelly|
|About the Study||This study of the Bratton Clovelly parish in West Devon began in 2013. The parish has ancient origins with mentions in Anglo-Saxon times and the Domesday Book of 1086. The village is still lively today, with St Mary's Church, the Village Hall, Clovelly Inn and many picturesque cottages. About fifty farms, some still carrying their medieval names, surround 'Bratton Town' in rolling countryside overlooked by the famously rugged Dartmoor.
A wide variety of records exist for this parish and transcriptions of many of the core records are now available. The Bratton Clovelly OPS website will be kept up-to-date with the latest information.
