New – Devon content

Our new website isn't just about the DA and its activities: we now include information about the county of Devon, with content gleaned from our publications and contributed by our members. As we launch, we don't yet have a great deal of Devon-related content on-board, but we will expand it over time. See the Devon contents page.
