Georgeham Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout North Devon...

This old village was mentioned in the 11th century Domesday Book and was, for a time in the 1920s, home to the writer Henry Williamson.

He lived at Skirr Cottage but also wrote in an old hut. The area inspired him to pen his most famous book, Tarka the Otter, which led to north Devon becoming 'Tarka Country'.

The local Church of St. George is thought to date back to the 12th century.
