FACTS

Burrington is roughly 540 ft above sea level

The oak tree that stands in the village square at Burrington is said to be about 500 years old.

Burrington is in "Tarka Country". Henry Williamson was the author of "Tarka the Otter", which won the Hawthornden Prize for Literature in 1928 and was filmed in 1977.

Henry Williamson spent a holiday in North Devon just before the outbreak of the First World War, and becoming enthralled with the wild scenery.

All is not quite as it may seem with this 'webcam'. Did it catch you out?

BURRINGTON FACTFILE
This spoof 'webcam' is courtesy of BBC Devon user, Dave Tylcoat and features on his Burrington website
Dave tells us: "Burrington is a small village in North Devon with about 500 people within the Parish. We are about 540 feet above sea level about a mile to the west of the Taw valley, 'Tarka Country'. There is a Post Office shop, a pub - the Barnstaple Inn, and a primary school."
"So far there have been reported sightings of foxes, sheep, a cat, a possible UFO - and Elvis (although someone maybe having a joke with that one!)"
We think you should check out some of the pictures as Dave keeps his tongue firmly in his cheek (Is it April 1st by any chance?)

Here are just a few of the sights that have been seen
on the Burrington webcam:
Was Elvis spotted in Burrington? So that's where Beagle got to
