Dunsland manor

Said to have been the finest of the ancient manor houses of Devon,in 1954, Dunsland came into the ownership of the National Trust who devoted years to its restoration and preservation only to see it totally destroyed by a raging fire on the night of  17 November 1967.  The cause of the fire was never discovered but it was so fierce that the decision had to be taken to pull down what remained of the walls of the house. Today, only the beautiful parkland remains for the public to see - a sad reminder of its 900 years of history.
