3:30 pm. Lentsherd (pronounced ‘Lanshard’) is an old Clovelly Shrove Tuesday custom.  Historically 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 their clattering tin cans.  When they reach the harbour, the children’s cans are then tied together, thrown into the sea and then retrieved.  Children taking part will receive a free pancake to decorate with toppings.
