Photographer's Note

SAMPFORD SPINEY, in the hundred of Roborough and in the deanery of Tamerton, lies about 11 miles from Plymouth, under Dartmoor. Part of the village of Horrabridge is in this parish.

The manor belonged, in the reign of Henry III., and for some generations afterwards, to the family of Spinet, or De Spineto. In 1630 it was the property of Sir Francis Drake.
The church (St. Mary) was probably a 14th century cruciform building, enlarged to its present size in the early 16th century.
The alpacas are a more recent arrival that have happily settled into the location.
