Posted on: 1st November 2015


Thursday 12th November at 2.30pm in Woodmead Hall: Images of Dartmoor. The life, history and legends of the moor by Dartmoor National Park guide Tony Burges.


Currently on display in the Rotunda Gallery is “The Lyme Railway: Axed Fifty Years Ago”. This exhibition marks the 50th anniversary of the axing of the rail connection between Axminster and Lyme by Dr Richard Beeching on 27th November 1965. It aims to show visitors what the line was like during its short life from 1903 to 1965, including a newly commissioned painting, The Early Train to Lyme on Cannington Viaduct, by accomplished local transport artist Michael Stride.


There is a full schedule of Fossil walks and Mary Anning walks this month, although Lyme History walks and Rockpooling walks have finished until next year.
