Lynton and Lynmouth

Lynton is a small town on the Exmoor coast in Devon, England standing on top of the cliffs above the picturesque harbour village of Lynmouth, to which it is connected by the Lynton and Lynmouth Cliff Railway. Lynmouth straddles the confluence of the West Lyn and East Lyn rivers, in a gorge 700 feet (210 m) below Lynton. Lynton was once the terminus for the narrow-gauge Lynton & Barnstaple Railway, which served both towns.

The two communities are a civil parish governed by Lynton and Lynmouth Town Council. The parish boundaries extend southwards from the coast, and include hamlets such as Barbrook and small moorland settlements such as East Ilkerton, West Ilkerton and Shallowford.

Tithe Map:

The tithe maps and apportionments are an important source of information about the history and topography of a parish. They provide details of land ownership and occupation, and the type of cultivation of the land, and are often the earliest complete maps of parishes.
