This year’s course examines industrial archaeology in two nearby areas of Somerset and Devon through lectures and field visits. The first visit explores the Somerset Moors beside the River Parrett, with tours of the Westonzoyland pumping engine and steam collection, and a willow basket making operation. The second visit is to Axminster, for a tour of the working carpet factory, followed by much more down to the sea at Seaton. Everyone is welcome but please be aware that outdoor walking is involved and some indoor visits include steps. No previous knowledge needed.
