The Book of Shaugh Parish

‘It’s a Shaugh thing’

 By Don Balkwill

Front Cover



Old postcards of Shaugh Prior, Shaugh Bridge, Wotter and Lee Moor. Situated on the edge of Dartmoor, Devon, England.


More photographs of the Parish can be found here


This is not a history of Shaugh Parish,  it is an unashamedly nostalgic return to the area in words and pictures from those who have lived, worked or visited there.


This book came about as a result of the interest shown in my website

Parish of Shaugh

It is a large format (A4), 160 page hardback book containing over 250 historic photographs, maps drawings and other illustrations.
