Haldon Belvedere's spiral staircase

Haldon Belvedere’s spiral staircase

Exeter Branch has posted its events list for 2018. The year starts with a party which includes an amusing talk by Dr Sue Knox about Haldon Belvedere. This is followed in February by a talk on F. W. Meyer, a landscape gardener working in the Westcountry in the late Victorian era. Subsequent talks are on Roman Exeter and the Seaton Down Hoard in March, and Exeter’s Cathedral Yard fire in April.

In May a visit to Ashley Court near Tiverton has been arranged, followed in July by an excursion to Tiverton Castle and an August walk along Dawlish seafront to learn about its geology and the development of the town. The year draws to a close with the Branch Annual Lunch in September and the AGM in November.
