A 'fun' fact about Mounts Farm to entertain you whilst you're there.

The Mounts is a small hamlet, containing only 17 houses. Historically, Mounts Farm was the border of the area which was evacuated during World War II so that secret rehearsals for the D-Day landings ("Exercise Tiger") could be carried out, using Slapton Sands. Properties on the east side of the A381 were evacuated, whereas properties on the west side were allowed to remain occupied.
Now the hamlet is home to 'a fine pair'. Things are looking up...

If anyone has a more interesting fact about this place please post in your log. I might even add it to the page!
