Kitley  Devon


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Kitley like this:

KITLEY, a seat in the S of Devon; on the river Yealm, 2 miles S of Plympton-Earls. It belonged to the Pollexfens; passed to the Bastards; and contains many of Reynold's paintings. A large cavern is near it, of similar character to the famous fossil cavern of Yealm-Bridge; but it has not been found to contain any bones.

Additional information about this locality is available for Yealmpton
