12/11/2015: From herring roe custard to kipper pâté: Clovelly Herring Festival

The village of Clovelly, north Devon, UK, is clamped to its sheer hillside overlooking the Bristol Channel, much like a limpet clings to a rock, Sophie Morris writes for the Independent. 

A cobbled street so steep that no vehicles can navigate it leads down to the harbour. Most of the low cottages that line the way down to the sea are listed, and the entire village is owned by one man, the local squire, John Rous.

Its postcard-perfect outlook draws visitors year round, but this weekend the crowds will come to celebrate the return of the “silver darlings” – herrings. November is the start of the season and the Clovelly Herring Festival is the best of its kind, featuring exhibits on the history of herring and its fishermen as well as a kipper smokery and stalls selling herring every which way: smoked, fresh, marinated, fried.
