|Thurlestone Rock and Bolt Tail (in distance)|
Lapthorns (my family name) have lived near here for at least 500 years. A Lapthorn shared "1 fee of land" at South Huish (just off the left of this picture) way back in 1428. We have lived in these parts for a very long time. The coastline was probably quite different when Lapthorns first farmed or fished hereabouts.
I suspect my ancestors farmed on Dartmoor more than 4000 years ago before the soils were exhausted and when the climate was milder, living in Stone Age huts.
