About Combe Martin
Combe Martin is a village, civil parish and former manor on the North Devon coast. It is a small seaside resort on the north-west edge of the Exmoor National Park. The village lies in a narrow valley which dictates the layout of the village and is essentially a single street stretching for 2 miles between the top of the valley to the sea. Combe Martin has the Guinness world record for the world's longest street party. There is evidence of Iron Age occupation at nearby Newberry Castle fort. Study of the name reveals that "Combe" is derived from Old English cumb meaning "wooded valley". The 'Martin' suffix on the place name is from the name of the FitzMartin family, who featured during the 12th century fudes which occurred around that time. There are several disused silver mines on the eastern ridge and some relics from that age can still be seen, including the remains of a wheelhouse used to lift ore from the mine. Combe Martin silver has been used in the Crown Jewels and some war expenses of Edward the Third and Henry the Fifth were paid for by the sale of silver mined here.
