Default 'Darlick'....Anyone Know Where This Is???

Hi Gents,

Anyone know where DARLICK is in the UK?

(circa 1920's so may no exist now)

I'm assuming it's a small town, village etc.

All my on-line searches just bring up Dr Who.

Cheers,

Roy

Hi Roy

Sorry mate, I cant help. I have looked up my 1970 edition of the Readers Digest AA Book of the Road and theres no listing for Darlick, so it must only exist in middle earth some where.

Regards Phil.

I've lived in Devon almost my whole life and I have never seen a "darlick".

And I have had a flick through the doomsday book without any results.

Hi Roy
Are you sure it’s Darlick not Darnick as that’s in Scotland??

What is the context Roy? Darlick can be a surname

I found 3 mentions of ‘Darlick’ in the UK on Ancestry, including the following who I think must have been mistakenly brought back to Earth by Doctor Who! ..ahem!

Rob
"EX36 3LN" area of North Devon, nearish to Barkham.
Looks like it's a good spot for walking, cycling and running but there's no mention of any pubs so it wouldn't be on my radar if I lived out Devon ways either.

There's a Darlick Wood School nearish to my mother's address in Orpington but I don't know if that's named after a location or a person.

Only Daleks in Dr Who, not a single Darlick!

Found this on a 'family search' site , from mid 1800's:

"The father moved to Darlick, parish of North Moulton, Devonshire.This Darlick belonged to a family by the name of Nersons, the head stock-raiser of the North Devon Stock "

Later spelling :Parish of North Molton

From Historic England :

"The settlement of Darlick, North Molton, is first mentioned in 1651 and appears on later maps. The date of its desertion is uncertain, but a census record from 1911 exists, suggesting it was inhabited at this date. The settlement now takes the form of a rectangular enclosure measuring approximately 50m by 40m. There are remains of buildings and platforms and a linear earthwork which may have carried water from a spring to the site. The house is a ruinous stone-built rectangular structure measuring 10.6m by 4.9m and is dominated by the western gable end and chimney stack which remains standing to its full height."

Once again, you have done some excellent research there. My compliments.

Mike is the man.....

Thanks gents for all your help. I was looking for a reference 'location' related and Mike knocked it out of the park, thanks mate.

It's great when you get stuck and can ask what seems like a daft question and so many folks help out.

Thanks to all.

Cheers,

Roy

I assume its this picture Roy? judging by the road and pavement I find it hard to believe it was taken somewhere in this bit of Exmoor moorland?
