St Nicholas Church, Brushford

Close to Dulverton is the small village of Brushford. Two rivers flow nearby: the River Barle joining the River Exe, which reaches all the way up to Exeter and out to Exmouth on the coast. Following the River Barle upstream leads to a well-known beauty spot, Tarr Steps, which consists of a clapper bridge, constructed of large stone slabs, and dating from Tudor times. Folklore has it that the bridge was built by the Devil, who allowed people to cross, except when he wished to sunbathe there. In the medieval church is a memorial to Aubrey Herbert, an Edwardian explorer and adventurer, who is said to have inspired his friend John Buchan in creating the character of the hero in his novel, Greenmantle.
