A recently formed group with the objective of exploring different aspects of local history from the Bronze Age to the present day.
Our area of Devon, bordering Dartmoor and the Tamar Valley, is an ancient and compelling landscape, seemingly very natural but in reality much modified by our predecessors. Rocks N Ruins caters for those with an interest in learning about the history of this wonderful area.
We plan to visit a variety of sites, from Bronze Age settlements, quarrying of granite and slate, tinning, farming, towns and villages, and lots more besides.
Outings will involve some walking of up to about 4 miles to explore various archaeological and industrial aspects of the chosen subject.
Everyone in the group will be encouraged to research and lead walks, but you don’t have to be an expert to enjoy Rocks N Ruins
Our next outings are:
August: Shaugh Bridge industries
September: Devon Great Consols with Rick Stewart. We are joining the Geology group on Monday September 12th. Note change of date!
October: Edwin Lutyens (at Tavistock Museum)
|When:||Third Friday of the Month|
