Devon

DEVON is a south-western shire on the English and Bristol Channels, adjoining to the peninsula of Cornwall, bounded on the north and north-west by the Bristol Channel, on the north-east by Somerset, on the east by Dorset, and on the south by the English Channel: the river Tamar, separating it from Cornwall, forms the greater part of the western boundary.
