Interesting use of the word "famously".

(I can remember my late mother, 50 or so years ago, telling me that a fortune teller had predicted that Charles would never be king. Remind me how that one worked out...)

Exaggerated rather than meaningless, but deserves a wide audience...

Situated on the south coast, Burgh is the first stop off for any influx of visitors from the continent

The place is a tiny, tidal (part-time) island off Bigbury-on-Sea not all that close to Kingsbridge which in turn is not all that close to Totnes in Devon.

Not sure where you saw that Chris, but I think the original was referring to birds and other flying things (insects?) that cross the channel ...

Not quite meaningless but Fred Olsen Cruises offer cabins with ‘fully obscured views’ which tickled me.

Re-reading it, I see that you must be entirely right, um. It still doesn't read like that to me, maybe because of the way the words are arranged on the page.
