United Kingdom, England, Devon, Branscombe
Situated in southeast Devon, Branscombe is a picturesque village stretching along a valley leading down to a beach at Branscombe Mouth. Thomas W. Sears visited it during his 1908 trip to England and photographed a variety of locations, including many of the village's thatch-roofed cottages and other buildings. Sears also depicted the landscape of the area, from beach scenes to grazing cattle and sheep. Many sites in Branscombe photographed by Sears have been placed on the Statutory List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historical Interest, whose www.britishlistedbuildings.co.uk website has aided in their identification. A few of the images may be of other locations in England (see individual bibliographic records), but are included because they were originally found in Sears' files amongst the Branscombe photographs.
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies, and additional information.
Photographs of Branscombe by Sears were featured in The American Architect, Vol. XCVI, No. 1758 (September 1, 1909)
