Downderry, Cornwall

"Downdery! Downderry! The very name of this small Cornish seaside village has a rythmic, lyrical quality... Downderry down, Downderry down... it rings of lymeric, folk song and rhyme. Snug between the bay of Whitsand and the promontory of Looe, Downderry with its spouse Seaton, bathes in the constant ebb and flow of the English Channel. Their gentle cliffs roll and tumble towards the sea. " Sir John Betjeman
