Ilfracombe is a seaside resort on the North Devon coast, England. Until the mid-19th century Ilfracombe's economy was based around maritime activities: importing lime and coal from Wales; fishing for herring; and international trade, including to West Africa and the West Indies. Nowadays, tourism is the principal income generator along with a selection of ‘light engineering’ firms offering employment.[1]
