The self catering in devon tourist has been replaced in importance by a new kind of visitor - the one who comes to stay. The Westcountry in general has become an area of strong net immigration.

At the end of the 18th century communications throughout Devon were improving rapidly.

So it was that two brothers, Edward and John Henley, travelled to self catering in devon Exeter to hear John Wesley preach. Subsequently, Wesley stayed with them and preached at both West Hill and Pavor Meadow. It appears that Edward lived in Swan Street (behind Fleet Walk) and John lived at Barton. In 1788 they began to preach in accordance with Methodist principles from a room in George Street and, after objections from self catering in devon neighbours, used Edward's home in Swan Street. Edward and his wife still attended Matins at St. Saviour's, Torre, and trotted out to Barton, on one horse, for an afternoon service at brother John's and returned for an evening service at home.
