SEATON: Devon spots with U3A group

Thursday, 05 June 2014

THE speakers after the annual general meeting of Seaton U3A were Hilary Bradt and Janice Booth, who gave members a good-humoured and entertaining talk about some interesting but little known sites in Devon. They started with a picture quiz on screen, asking members to identify the 15 places depicted. Then Hilary and Janice took it in turns to describe the subjects of the slides, which ranged from the elegance of Burgh Island Hotel to the cow in the doorway at the Royal William Yard in Plymouth Dockyard, where the butchers worked ready for the victualling of Royal Navy ships. More pictures and stories introduced members to the eminently visitable tourist spots the speakers included. More can be found about these and more in the book “Slow Travel in South Devon and Dartmoor”, the Bradt Guide published by Hilary and Janice. Two more guides to other parts of Devon will follow later. There are now 16 subject groups in Seaton U3A with a total of 120 members, so there is plenty of choice for those considering joining.
