We welcome non-members to all our events, visits, coffee mornings and talks.
Our visits are often to historical places that are not normally open to the public eg's. Fursdon House & Downes House. However, over the last couple of years we have also had trips on Tiverton Canal on a horse drawn barge and sailed along Exeter ship canal to Exmouth. We went to Bristol to see the Staffordshire hoard of Anglo Saxon gold artefacts and visited to the Penzance Art Gallery. We are always open to suggestions for new trips.
