IT is one of the most famous rock formations on the south coast, but the Parson and the Clerk are not what they used to be. The vicar is still with us but his secretary, I fear, is not long for this world. The headland stacks off the coast of Dawlish were so named in the 1850s when the first visitors arrived on the newly-built Great Western railway line. This early engraving shows the Clerk as ...
