Zoom - On the Road in 17th Century Devon

October 19, 2020

On the Road in 17th Century Devon with member and leader of the Thorington Collection project Kevin Dickens. The A38 and A30 take us today from the border of east Devon to the River Tamar, but what was it like travelling from one end of the county to the other in the reign of Charles II? Based upon the written records of travellers and travelling a specific route Kevin will start on the eastern border of Devon and end up on the Tamar.

[EDIT: Please be aware the date was incorrectly stated as the 17th. The correct date is 20th October. Many apologies for any inconvenience.]

Zoom - The Traders of Tavistock

November 10, 2020

The Traders of Tavistock with Linda Elliott, the author of two books on the past Tradesmen and women of Tavistock. We are very proud of the unique place our town remains with its Pannier Market and individual shops. In the past there were many more premises than we see today. Take a walk up the lower half of Bannawell Street, for example, and see if you can spot the traces of shops that have disappeared to become solely dwellings. Linda will remind us of some of those who though no longer apparent on our streets made Tavistock the special place it continues today.
