Scope and Content
Ward and Lock's pictorial & historical guide to Dartmoor: its tors, antiquities, and other interesting features. London and New York: Ward, Lock, and Co., 1888. p. 40.Chagford is greatly resorted to in the summer -by artists, intent on sketching the scenery in the neighbourhood; by fishermen, who "whip" the Teign and its tributaries, and fill their baskets with delicious trout; and by visitors of "all sorts and conditions," who come hither to lay in a store of the good health, for which the dwellers on the Moor are proverbial, and to see the natural and artificial wonders and the beauties of the neighbourhood.[Text may be taken from a different source or edition than that listed as the source by Somers Cocks.]
