Pebblebed Heaths next topic of Coffee Time Talk in Budleigh Salterton

Fairlynch Museum’s next Coffee Time Talk is on Wednesday, February 5, and focuses on the Pebblebed Heaths.

Kim Strawbridge, site manager of East Devon Pebblebed Heaths, will reveal the work that goes into looking after the special conservation site.

A spokesman for the event said: “The Pebblebed Heaths have been occupied by people since the Bronze Age when turf cutting, burning and grazing helped turn the once densely wooded area into the sweeping open landscape that we love today.

“This talk by Kim Strawbridge will explain what makes the heaths so special and how they are cared for to provide space for people and wildlife.”

The talk is at the Peter Hall, The Lawn, Budleigh Salterton, and has been organised by the Friends of Fairlynch Museum. Doors open at 10.30am, for an 11am start.

Entry is £3 for Friends of Fairlynch and £5 for others, to include tea or coffee, and a biscuit.
