Coronavirus – event postponed

At this very concerning time for all of us the health and wellbeing of visitors, staff and volunteers is of the utmost importance to the South West Heritage Trust.

For that reason the Trust has taken the decision to postpone or cancel all planned events up to the end of May and to review later events in due course.

If you have booked and paid in advance for an event, please contact us and we would be happy to provide a refund.

You can email us at or phone 01458 831197.

In light of the rapidly-changing national picture we’ll be updating our website regularly with the latest information about Trust sites and activity.

Bring your own lunch, or it can be purchased from the Grain Store Café on the day. Please wear suitable clothes for a workshop.

Images: These are bee suncathchers that Richard has previously created. It’s worth noting that the bees created in this workshop won’t look exactly like this as there is quite a lot of wire-working in these – you will be creating a much more simplified version.
