Saki Country: Images From Devonshire, UK - Part I

Colin Cameron, co-producer on our potential Saki project, recently flew over to England on a mission to obtain information, both visual and other, about the the countryside in which H.H. Munro was raised and wrote about in his stories. Colin visited the author's childhood stomping grounds where he lived with his the two stern Victorian aunts in the province of Devon near the town of Barnstaple.

Munro lived in several different locales near the town of Barnstable in the county of Devon (occasionally referred to as Devonshire when used in a historical context). This is where Colin set up base camp.
