Combe Martin village, Devon
Combe Martin is a former lead/silver mining village on the North Devon coast. The settlement runs mainly along a single street, said to be the longest vilaage street in the country. To the east of the village lie the spectacular cliffs of Little Hangman and Great Hangman, some 1,044 feet above sea level. Further to the east lies Holstone Down at 1,146 feet. The mines worked on and off between 1300 and 1875 when they were abondoned for the last time. Iron ore was found nearby at Wild Pear Bay, below Little Hangman and manganesse was also worked at Rawnes.
