Forestry Ventures – a century of change in Fingle Woods

Forestry Ventures – a century of change in Fingle Woods

In 2016 the Woodland Trust and National Trust received a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to help restore the ancient woodland at Fingle.

As the work proceeds we are learning more and more about the historical significance of this important landscape.

This multi-media exhibition reflects some of the pioneering changes in woodland management enacted here over the last century. It tells the story of the people who worked and lived here and the way they won a living on the dramatic steep slopes of the Teign Valley on the northern edge of Dartmoor.

It will also showcase the achievements and challenges of the current restoration and how this too is literally unearthing history on our doorsteps.

Life Drawing Day

Life Drawing Day


A Life Drawing day session with professional models, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in the Parish Hall.

All welcome, whether established artist or absolute beginner. We plan to do short poses in the morning and a series of longer ones in the afternoon.

You certainly don't have to be any good to get started as in our opinion drawing is far too important to be left to experts!

We do have spare easels, chairs and a limited number of tables for you to borrow should you wish - please call Georgie on 01647 440775 to discuss. 

Please note that this is NOT tutored.

Tea and coffee available - please bring your own lunch.
