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

Sidmouth has featured in various literary works, e.g. as "Stymouth" in Beatrix Potter's children's story The Tale of Little Pig Robinson (1930) in which the author included views of the beach and other parts of the Devon countryside. In Thomas Hardy's Wessex it is the inspiration for "Idmouth". "Baymouth" in William Makepeace Thackeray's Pendennis, and "Spudmouth" in The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood by Howard Pyle, are both based on the town.

Now the town 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!
