Natural Beauty . The South Hams, along with nearby Broadsands in Paignton, is the last British (Great Britain) refuge of the Cirl Bunting. History The South Hams were originally part of the Brythonic (Britons (historical)) (Celtic) Kingdom of Dumnonia later reduced to the modern boundary at the River Tamar as Cornwall presumably during the tenth-century reign of Æthelstan. Post-Roman settlement on coastal promontory hillforts (hill fort), such as Burgh Island

produces some of the finest milk and Devon cream. Within that belt are the medieval towns of Modbury and Totnes and small hamlets and villages such as...Holbeton, Marldon and Berry Pomeroy, which would no doubt produce very fine wine if it were French. There are fruit farms and vineyards and the land flows with milk and honey. The third band is the Heritage coast and South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty , running from near the fishing port of Brixham

-on-Sea Bigbury Bay past Burgh Island and Hope Cove to the promontory known as Bolt Tail. The next 6 miles (10 km) of cliff top paths from Bolberry Down past Bolt Head and the tidal ria of Kingsbridge Estuary to Prawle Point, belong to the National Trust (National Trust for Places of Historic Interest or Natural Beauty). The estuary is crossed using the Salcombe Ferry, from Salcombe to East Portlemouth, close to Salcombe Castle

Post-Roman settlement on coastal promontory hillforts (hill fort), such as Burgh Island, follows the established pattern of trading—of tin in particular—found across the western, so-called 'Celtic', Atlantic coastal regions. In the later Anglo-Saxon era (Anglo-Saxon England), the South Hams was a feudal estate consisting of all of the land between the River Plym and River Dart and south of Dartmoor with the English Channel forming the southern boundary. There is some evidence that Cornish (Cornish language) was spoken and understood in the area until the late Middle Ages.
