The 2017 Friends of Devonís Archives Autumn meeting will take place in Barnstaple, on Saturday 30th September. It will begin with coffee at the North Devon Record Office at 10:30 am, and after the AGM, it will involve two tours, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. The morning one is an introduction to the new layout of the North Devon Record Office and its resources, including a view behind the scenes and an introduction to the North Devon Athenaeum in the same building. After lunch, attendees will be treated to a tour of Barnstaple and some of its most historic buildings by Devonís leading archaeologist and historic buildings expert, John Allan, FSA. The afternoon tour will aim to arrive at its last destination, the museum, at 3:45pm.
The cost for the day will be £5 for members of FoDA and our partner organisation, the Devon History Society, and £10 for non-members. The cost has been kept to a minimum in order to encourage as many people as possible to come. Please do! You wonít get a better guided tour of the historic town from anyone.
