Devon Group trip to Beer, and Pecorama

Wed 26th September

A group of 11 L&B Trust members enjoyed a trip to Beer and Seaton in East Devon by train from Barnstaple to Exeter and then on to Axminster and then bus via Seaton to Beer, Pecorama.

1. Sampling the Beer Heights Light Railway with JOOLS (originally built by Exmoor Steam Railway and then named SAMASTIPUR) on duty today.

2. Prior to helping to organise foody things at the September Gala, retired L&B catering manager Judy Williams and partner Chris Bull also came along on this trip.

3. Great floral displays around the gardens.

4. Lunch was taken at The Garden Restaurant cafe at Pecorama. Then time to view the model railways on display.

5. With an hour to kill in between the bus connection at Seaton, the group have an excuse to have a beer or two sitting outside in the autumn sunshine.

The return home was delayed by late trains on the South Western Railway single lines to Exeter resulting in a missed connection and so yet another excuse to find an Exeter pub for more food and beer.
