Clovelly Lentsherd
This event is now in the past.


Feb 2024

Lentsherd (pronounced ‘Lanshard’) is an old Clovelly Shrove Tuesday custom, and the aim is to chase bad spirits away and drive the devil into the sea before Lent.  At dusk children set off Down-a-long, dragging, clattering tin cans, which are then tied together and thrown into the sea (later retrieved).  Children taking part will receive a free pancake to decorate with toppings.
