Leats and Landscape (Geology and IA Sections)

Sat. 11 May 2019 at 10:00 am

£3 – £4

Exploring the leats and the landscape around Exe Island, Exeter. With Martin Watts and Jenny Bennett.

We meet at 10 am the Mill on the Exe Restaurant/pub for a short talk about the area and to look at old maps. We will then follow the course of the Upper Leat past Old Exe Bridge. Martin will talk about the mills and leats; Jenny will discuss the landscape and links to the river.

All-day parking is not available at the Mill on the Exe, so we suggest parking elsewhere.

Numbers for this event are limited and places will be assigned on a first-come-first-served basis. Those without email can book by letter or phone. Please cancel your booking if you find that you cannot come.

DA members £3, non-DA £4 (pay on the day)

Note: as of 24 April, this event is fully booked with a waiting list.
