A lovely day out was arranged to Tiverton on 13th October 2001 to visit Tiverton castle, including a look at Hermon French's collection of Geological specimens.

In the afternoon we had a very pleasant trip on the horse-drawn barge that runs along the Grand Western canal. Some photos from the day are reproduced below.
