Dr. Patricia Milton, of the University of Plymouth, will be giving a talk on “The Literary Invention of Dartmoor” on Friday afternoon, 25 July, 2:30 pm, at Endecott House, Chagford. This event is sponsored by the Chagford Local History Society and the Devon History Society. It is free to members of these societies, and £2.50 to non-members. Please book in advance (Tel: (01647) 433492) as there will be a cut-off number due to the capacity of the hall. Refreshments will be available.
The talk coincides with the “Ex Libris” Flower Festival in the Parish Church of St Michael. The theme of this year’s festival is inspired by the work of the many authors and illustrators who have lived in Chagford over centuries, up to the present day. The festival runs from Friday, 25 July to Sunday 27 July, 10:00 am – 6:00 pm each day (excluding Service times).
