Our Explorer this year will be to the West Country looking at the Tamar valley and the edges of Dartmoor.

There is a wealth of industrial archaeology in this area and we will be looking at the evidence for mining and quarrying, and the associated transport links.

The Great Western Railway will not be ignored with a visit to Saltash to view the famous bridge.

We will also be visiting the Tavistock Canal and the inland port at Morwellham Quay.

Towns will not be ignored with visits to Plymouth, where we will be looking at both the development of the port and the city, and Tavistock.

The visit will be based in Plymouth and travel will be by mini coach.

Planning is just beginning and the sites and visits have not been fully explored yet.

There is much of interest in the area, though some sites may not be easily accessible by road and there is likely to be more walking than usual.
