Dulverton Group visit
First – Catch a glimpse of monastic life 800 years ago; although the abbey church was destroyed by Henry VIII during the dissolution in 1536, the cloister buildings including the gatehouse, 15th century refectory with its glorious angel roof and 13th century heraldic tiles have survived remarkably intact. The great dormitory is one of the best examples in the country, and an exhibition and virtual tour tells the story of the abbey and daily life for the holy men that once inhabited it.
Second – Torre Cider Farm for lunch. The farm has been producing traditional scrumpy for over 20 years, ranging from extra dry to medium sweet cider, as well as making delicious fresh apple juice. They also sell the ever popular cider vinegar which has an array of interesting uses, so there is something for everyone, all of which is free to taste in the farm shop or simply enjoy the surroundings with a nice pint of cider!
