Wildlife in Devon Farmsteads & Houses
Patrick Dillon, a cultural ecologist says - ‘It’s about welcome friends and uninvited guests, about the wildlife that shares our living spaces and how we’ve adapted buildings to attract - or deter - them.’
The remainder of the talks are on the last Monday of the month January through April.
An April Exhibition
Next Easter our exhibition is mainly about Branscombe Pubs - The Masons Arms, the Fountain Head and the Three Horseshoes.
So if you know anything about their history,
if you have stories to tell, beans to spill, photos or pictures, we’d love to hear from you.
January 29 - 7:30 Monday
Creating a new Moon & Tide Clock
Many of you will know Laura and Jon as great providers of fresh eggs and chickens
in Branscombe, but you probably didn’t know that Laura’s the guiding spirit behind
the construction of a wonderful huge Moon and Tide clock at Greenwich.
This is the story of how this project, which celebrates our diverse cultural and maritime heritage, reconnects us with the rhythms of our ocean planet came about.

88 Temples at Seventy
It’s amazing what a man will do to avoid a Seventieth birthday party!
Trevor Wood set out on his own for the island of Shikoku and spent two months walking from temple to temple – all eighty-eight of them.
He had many adventures, saw amazing places and landscapes, and met wonderful people.
