Saki Country: Images From Devonshire, UK - Part II

H.H. Munro was born in Burma, but lost his mother when he was just 2 years of age. His father, an inspector-general for the then British-controlled Burmese police, sent his three children back to England to be raised by Munro's elderly grandmother and his two strict, straitlaced aunts.

The house they lived in during this period still stands--and is currently for sale! It's about 9 or 10 blocks, a 40 minute casual walk, from central Barnstable to the rural community of Pilton.

Video and stills shot by Colin Cameron on his recent travels to Devon County, England.

Front gate with a contemporary house name displayed.

Front of house looking rather overgrown.

Stone wall running along side of front yard.

From around the backside of the property.

More to come.
