Moorwellham Quay (Edwardian Farm fame) well worth a visit I could go on and on….. in fact I will – Sherlock Holmes famously tracked down the Hound of the Baskervilles in the Mire behind Tor Royal, War Horse was filmed at Sheepstor just over the hill, some of Rosalind Pilcher’s novels have been put to film locally, The ‘Edwardian County Lady’s Diary’ author regularly visited the area, The ‘Last white Rajahs’ the Brookes were based at Sheepstor, visit the lovely St. Leonards Church where the family is buried.
