Devon – Known as “The English Riviera”
Devon is located in the south-west of England and is the only county in the country to have two separate coastlines (in the north and south).
Human remains have been found in the area that date back 30–40,000 years and hunter-gatherers are believed to have occupied Dartmoor from around 6000 BC. Much later the Romans controlled the area, followed by visits from the Saxons and then the Normans. The county witnessed many conflicts and wars in the years that followed.
In the past Devon was known for producing tin, copper and other metals, and agriculture played an important part, although this was badly affected by the ‘foot and mouth’ crisis in 2001.
Devon has been an attraction for tourists from the time railways appeared in the county and the economy relies heavily on this trade. Its favourable climate and attractive seaside locations have led to its nickname of “The English Riviera”
