Forthcoming Meetings

Monday 26th March

Caerhayes Castle and Gardens

The first visit will be to Caerhays Castle and Gardens, on Monday 26th March. http://www.caerhays.co.uk The castle is English Heritage Outstanding Grade 1 designed by John Nash and the 140 acre gardens were made famous by the Williams family. They hold the National Collection of magnolias containing over 600 species. The award winning Burncoose Nursery further west is also connected to Caerhays. There is also a beach so you could bring a bucket and spade if so inclined! Combined admission price for a group is £13, I have booked a 27 seater coach (the alternative was 49) and the price for that will be £16 per person. I have booked tours of the castle but not of the garden. The Magnolia café serves lunches and teas. The coach will leave from the Toby Inn at Middlemoor at 9.00am and return about 6pm. I have arranged parking, as last year, it is in the rear car park. The Digby and Sowton station is ten mins walk away and the Sidmouth bus, the 9/9A and H go to Middlemoor.

I must ask you to send me a cheque, made payable to the University of Exeter for £29 pp, as soon as possible as I have the bookings on a provisional basis. Please book as soon as you can, that would be really helpful!
