Scope and Content
Butcher Rev. Edmund. The beauties of Sidmouth displayed. Sidmouth: John Wallis, 1820. Third Edition. p. 38-9. The lodging-houses upon the beach, and near it, having a view of the sea, are about forty, terminating with Rock Cottage, at the west end, belonging to Mr. Joseph Sparks, and commanding a view of the whole beach, and the eastern cliffs. Immediately beyond Rock Cottage, and crowning a projecting rock, is Clifton Cottage; built by E. B. Lousada, Esq. who has erected, at the western extremity of the same field, another, upon a more extensive scale. To this division of habitations which, from its detached and elevated situation, is denominated Clifton, Mr. Heffer has added a new house, called Westmount Cottage, overlooking the lower end of the Ham, wherein is situated Woolbrook Cottage, the property of Major-General Baynes, and the residence of his late Royal Highness the Duke of Kent.[Text may be taken from a different source or edition than that listed as the source by Somers Cocks.]
